Base Common Output Levels (COL) to change Cost-saving measure adjusts janitorial, grounds-keeping maintenance frequency From NavFac SE NASP PWD

The Navy uses Common Output Levels (COL) to determine levels of service for facilities services such as grounds maintenance and janitorial work. Currently, the Navy is operating at COL 3, which for janitorial includes things such as trash pickup at individual office spaces (once per day) and more frequent cleaning at higher visibility areas such as a CO or flag headquarters area. For grounds, COL 3 means regular trimming of hedges and shrubs and weed control, as well as higher levels of service for areas such as the NATTC entrance and the NAS Pensacola headquarters. Starting June 1 for janitorial and Sept. 1 for grounds keeping, these services will be reduced to COL 4. The biggest impacts base personnel will see in janitorial are that there will be no more individual trash pickup, only pickup in common areas. “Although the sequestration battle ended last year, facilities budgets are still operating at

Joseph Kane has been missing since a May 13, 2013, kayak trip and he is believed to have drowned. Base leaders gathered with family and friends of Joseph Kane for the sign unveiling, which included a short hike on the trial and a reception under a large live oak tree west of the Pensacola Lighthouse. Joseph Kane performed his Eagle Scout project on the trail, and his father said “we are honored, we’re humbled that you decided to honor Joseph in this way.

Ready Navy: Hurricane season begins June 1 By Shannon Maxwell Commander Navy Installations Command Ready Navy Program

WASHINGTON (NNS) – The 2014 hurricane and typhoon season will begin soon. Ready Navy, a Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) program, wants all Sailors and their families to prepare for the 2014 season. “It’s important for Sailors and their families, and civilian personnel to recieve information from within their command

about the likeliness of hurricanes or typhoons in the area, as well as preparation procedures and expectations,” said Vice Adm. William French, Commander, Navy Installations Command. “You can visit the Ready Navy website and take steps to ensure that your families are ready to face a hurricane at home, particularly if they must face them alone should you be deployed.” Hurricane season in the At-

lantic begins June 1 and ends Nov. 30. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season began May 15 and also ends Nov. 30. Typhoon season in the Northwest Pacific Ocean west of the International Date Line runs July 1 to Sept. 30. Prepare now. Basic hurricane preparedness steps are: • Be and stay informed of the likelihood of hurricane activity in your area and what to do before, during and after a hurricane,

• Make a plan that includes multiple evacuation routes and an out-of-town point of contact, • Build a portable emergency

supply kit for the home and office that includes enough supplies

Museum symposium focuses on historic milestones Story, photo by Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

NAS Pensacola volunteers making a difference with flood victimsʼ cleanup ... “I was talking to the guys and I was watching what was going on,” area flood victim Tommy Pfiefer told NASP Community Outreach’s LS2 Jarrod Moore. “I told each and every one of them so far that you’re helping more than you can ever imagine and I’ll tell you how you are helping. This is my house, and I emotionally, mentally ... every time I (move) something out this house it affects me greatly. (The NASP volunteers) doing it are saving me the pain and emotion, and to be honest the tears, of doing it. So, when you leave from here I want each of you all to know ... you have helped more then you will ever, ever realize. And God bless every one of you.” (Above) Base volunteers attend a cleanup and safety briefing from ACCS Trent Hathaway. Photo by Jen Hathaway For more photos and story, see page 4A.

Two milestones of naval aviation were the focus of the 2014 Naval Aviation Symposium – 100 years of naval flight training and the 40th anniversary of women in naval aviation. Retired Marine Lt. Col. Duane Theissen, president and CEO of the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation, promised some interesting discussions as he welcomed guests to the symposium May 8. “During that 100 years a lot has happened,” he said. The three-day event held at the National Naval Aviation Museum aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola variety of activities to highlight the history and heritage of naval aviation including a golf tournament, luncheon, banquet and panel sessions.

Vice Adm. Robin Braun, Chief of Navy Reserve, holds up a copy of a magazine article that she said inspired her to pursue a career in naval aviation.

near-sequestration levels,” said NASP Public Works Officer Cmdr. Jeff Deviney. “These decreased levels of janitorial and grounds maintenance service are a prime example of that.” With regard to grounds, the biggest change NASP personnel will see is that no edging, weed control, shrub, hedge, plant bed and tree maintenance will be provided. In addition, there will be no more prestige areas for grounds or janitorial work. That means places such as the NATTC entrance and NASP headquarters will no longer be kept up to the level they are now and NASP CO office will receive the same level of janitorial service as everywhere else. From custodial and grounds COL 4 fact sheet: Impacts of custodial COL 4 (begins June 1) 1. Custodial requirements for Child and Youth Programs (CYP) will continue to comply with OpNavInst 1700.9E. 2. Custodial requirements of treatment areas for medical clinics, dental clinics and hospitals will continue to comply with JCAHO standards as funded by BuMed. BuMed administrative areas under CNIC controls will follow COL 4 standards. 3. All spaces will be treated the same. No prestige areas. Waiver process is available through NASP and CNRSE for those that wish to pay for higher level of service. 4. No cleaning or trash pickup except in common areas. (hallways, conference rooms, chapel, library). Trash pickup in common areas weekly. Individuals’ trash must be placed in centralized containers in centralized areas such as common areas or breakrooms for pickup (do not use bathrooms). Trash can liners will be provided by janitorial service. 5. Common area floor care once monthly vs. twice. 6. Restrooms cleaned and serviced with consumables and trash pickup daily. 7. Breakrooms/coffee mess areas supplied with consumables weekly. No cleaning. Trash pickup daily. 8. Floor and carpet cleaning frequencies reduced significantly. 9. Door walk off mats cleaned weekly. 10. Recycling process is unchanged. Impacts of grounds COL 4 (begins Sept. 1) 1. All improved grounds will be treated the same. No prestige areas. Waiver process is available through NASP and CNRSE for those that wish to pay for higher level of service. 2. Will continue to cut grass at current levels and maintain the airfield as always for BASH and clear zone purposes. 3. No edging, fertilization, weed control, dethatching, aeration, overseeding, debris removal, shrub, hedge, plant bed and tree maintenance provided. Unscheduled service is authorized only in response to health, safety, or sanitation issues and to prevent interference with vehicular/pedestrian traffic. Each unscheduled instance shall be approved by the regional commander or their designee. 4. Maintenance of storm ditches, perimeter fences, fire breaks, roadway clearances and cutting back shrubs to prevent rodent harborage will continue.

MWR satisfaction survey Beginning May 12, DoD is conducting its military services’ Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Customer Satisfaction Survey. A personalized invitation to participate in the DoD survey has been e-mailed from the Claes Fornell International (CFI) to randomly selected service members worldwide. The survey is voluntary, anonymous and confidential, and will appear as being from the CFI Group “on behalf of DoD.” The invitations are being e-mailed in batches over the course of several days. Not every Sailor will receive an invitation to participate – only randomly selected activeduty Sailors. Two reminder e-mails will be sent following the initial invitation. Survey participants will be asked questions about nine MWR programs they have used. They then will be asked additional questions in three randomly-selected program areas. MWR programs and services are recognized to improve readiness, retention, and unit cohesion. The results of this DoD survey are important for developing the future of MWR programs across the services and meeting the needs of service members and their families. Your opinion matters. If you receive the survey, take a few minutes to relate your MWR experiences and how MWR can make them better.

The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher bi-plane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship.

The image on the right side is the Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F-18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students.

USAJOBS lists federal employment opportunities By MC1(SW) Greg Johnson Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Searching for a new job can be stressful for anybody, but those on the hunt for a federal government position often have a number of questions unique to their own experience and many of those questions are related to the application process through USAJOBS. USAJOBS is a free, web-based job board enabling federal job seekers access to thousands of job opportunities with hundreds of federal agencies and organizations. Prior to 2012, federal government job listings were spread out across a number of individual agencies. “President (Barack) Obama implemented an initiative for one, central location for applicants to go and that’s when all agencies went to strictly using USAJOBS to announce their vacancies,” said Aqueilla Grimmage-Smith, supervisor with the Navy Region Southeast Human Resources Department. “The goal is to streamline the job-search process to make it faster and more convenient for people to access government listings.” The first step to access USAJOBS listings is to visit the website at http://www.usajobs.gov and create a login. Applicants can then create and store up to five resumes per account, browse listings and apply to jobs for which they meet eligibility requirements. The steps for applying for specific listings are as follows: • Locate the announcement (job

How to submit a commentary

search can be done by agency, occupation, grade, location, etc.). • Click “Apply Online.” • Select the resume you wish to utilize. • Complete the eligibility questionnaire. • After uploading all required documents, submit your responses. • You will receive an e-mail confirming your submissions. According to Grimmage-Smith, it is important for applicants to pay close attention to the eligibility requirements for each listing. Certain listings on USAJOBS are restricted to applicants who meet specific requirements, such as wounded warriors, disabled veterans, active-duty spouses and individuals with disabilities. These requirements, or “appointment authorities,” are listed under the “Who may apply” section of the listing. “Many of the eligibility restrictions are geared toward our veterans as a result of the great sacrifices they have made during their service, but there is even more to it than that,” GrimmageSmith said. “It’s about getting the right people into the right positions. Military members are trained and have the specific skillsets we need on many of our military bases. While they have earned their appointment authority through their service, it is also a major advantage to management to be able to hire employ-

ees with their experience.” Veteran applicants typically fall under four categories: Provisional appointment of 30 percent or more compensable disabled veterans; veterans recruitment appointment (VRA); veterans’ employment opportunity authority (VEOA); and the wounded warrior project. Appointments for compensable disabled veterans and wounded warriors are similar in that candidates from both categories may be appointed non-competitively to positions for which they qualify. Applicants must provide a letter from the Veterans Administration (VA) or branch of service documenting a compensable service-connected disability of 30 percent or more, SF-15 Application for 10point veterans preference, and DD Form 214 Certificate of Release. Veterans without service-connected disabilities may still meet eligibility requirements for non-competitive VRA positions up to the GS-11 pay grade. Applicants are VRA-eligible if they have earned a campaign badge, are a disabled veteran, have earned an Armed Forces Service Medal for participation in a military operation,. Applicants must provide a VA letter and DD Form 214 to verify eligibility. Veterans may also qualify for appointment under the VEOA. Eligible applicants must have completed at least three years of active-duty service with a separation under honorable conditions. While many USAJOBS appointment authorities apply to veterans, other applicants may still meet requirements for non-competitive positions. Spouses of

active-duty service members with orders specifying a permanent change of station, spouses of 100 percent disabled service members and spouses of a service member who was killed while performing active duty are also eligible. Eligibility verification requirements can be found under the “Who may apply section of the listing. “Spouses put their careers on hold to support our service members, so this is an avenue for them to seek employment,” Grimmage-Smith said. “In a sense, they serve alongside the service member and this gives them a chance to seek employment on base with their spouse, who they are following across the world.” One appointment not entirely restricted to veterans and spouses is Schedule A. This authority allows federal agencies to hire individuals with severe physical, psychiatric or intellectual disabilities. Applicants do not need to have any military or previous federal government experience. Eligibility requirements include medical documentation substantiating the applicant’s disability. “It is important to inform everyone of the different types of appointment authorities because we are an equal employment opportunity employer,” Grimmage-Smith said. “We don’t discriminate based on disabilities, and we need applicants to understand that it’s not just geared toward veterans and spouses. USAJOBS offers federal government employment opportunities for everyone.”

NAS Pensacola volunteers respond to combat widespread flood damage

T

he storm’s intesity caught everyone by surprise. Though the base closed April 30, NAS Pensacola bounced back quickly, putting more than 120 service member volunteers from NASC, NATTC and NORU to work to help clean up. By Lt. Clay Cunningham NASC NACCS Division Officer

Since May 2, NASP Naval Aircrew Candidate School students have been volunteering their time and muscle to assist some of the hardest hit flood victims in the local community. Shortly after the devastating floods along the Panhandle, more than 90 aircrew students quickly responded to the call for help, specifically around the Brownsville Baptist Church and local residents seriously affected by the flash floods and rising waters. Operation Blessing has significantly contributed toward the recovery efforts in the area. The aircrew students helped families and the church remove water damaged belongings, furniture and eliminated excess standing water from low-lying areas. Without the quick response from the military students, many areas would

Students say that one of the major reasons they joined the military was to give back to their community, and now they are getting a chance to live up to that responsibility. Many have stated that this has been one of their most gratifying Navy experiences. The church and community have sincerely expressed their gratitude for the selfless efforts of the “angels” that descended upon their local communities to help with the cleanup efforts. “Our church member volunteers were overwhelmed after two days of back-breaking cleanup and your Sailors came in and revived us,” Trinity Presbyterian Church’s Rev.

NMCRS: Flood victims and a helping hand Story, photo by Sarah Overton Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Publications Coordinator

P

ensacola is drying out after a recent storm dumped 24 inches of rain in approximately 26 hours. The storm peaked with six inches of rainfall being recorded between 9 and 10 p.m. April 29. The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) stepped forward to help service members and their families deal with a crisis that hit too close to home for many: homes were destroyed, cars were ruined and lives were upended all over the community. Marine Staff Sgt. Russell Stratmann was asleep when the storm intensified and water entered his home in southwest Pensacola: “My roommate ran into my room at around midnight and told me that the house was flooding. I thought he was joking. I followed him out into the living room, and sure enough, water was bubbling up through the corners of the room. We wound up with eight inches of floodwater in our house, but it could have been so much worse: we looked outside at one point during that night, and the water was lapping at the bottom of the windows. We spent the rest of the night trying to keep electronics and important things from getting wet, until the waters finally began to subside at around dawn. The worst thing is that we moved in just a few weeks ago, and a lot of our things were still packed in boxes on the floor when the house began to flood. We lost pretty much everything. Even our cars flooded out. Our whole neighborhood was rendered uninhabitable. They told us we had to leave. “When they told us to move out, I knew I needed help. When you know you’re

moving, you usually have a few months to plan and budget. However, when you’re told that you have a day to vacate and find a new place to live, you don’t have that luxury. I knew that the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society could help. NMCRS always knows what’s going on and they always know how to fix things.” Retired CS1 Terrance Bradley and his family were preparing for bed at their home in Pace when the floodwaters rose:

“My wife and I noticed water seeping into the bedroom at around 9 p.m., as we were getting ready for bed. We tried to soak up the water with towels and blankets, thinking that that was as bad as the storm was going to get. I ran to the kitchen for a mop and discovered water rushing into the kitchen as well. Just then, my 18year-old son ran out of his bedroom, telling me that there was water pouring into his bedroom. Within moments, we were standing in ankle-deep water and it was still rising. I knew we couldn’t stay in the house with the water rising so quickly. We grabbed our toddler and headed outside to my truck. The water outside was kneedeep and rushing like a river. We slowly drove to higher ground, and rode out the rest of the storm from the truck. A police officer checked on us at around 2 a.m. and told us to stay put: the roads were so badly flooded that nobody could move. The roads became passable at around 8 a.m., and I got my family settled in a hotel room. We were able to go back to our house later in the week and most of our things had been destroyed. All of our furniture, our clothes … all soaked. We were lucky, though, because many of our treasured family photos were in a box on a high shelf and they were untouched. “My first thought, after ensuring that

“Although NASP closed on the day of the flooding NMCRS was busy making contacts and working behind the scenes to prepare for providing assistance as soon as we were allow back,” said NAS Pensacola NMCRS Director Mark Harden. “Our office opened the next day with a full staff to serve those that were in need. We have continued to assist families since the flooding and have provided over $14,000 in assistance to military flood victims.”

my family was safe, was the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. After spending 20 years in the Navy, and seeing first-hand how they have helped my Sailors and my family, I knew that they would help us recover from this flood.” AS1 Nicholas Redford and his family were asleep in their southwest Pensacola home when co-workers and neighbors alerted them to the rising flood: “My phone started receiving texts from the guys at work at about 2:30 a.m.: they were warning me that the storm was causing severe flooding. My wife and I peeked out the door, and discovered that the floodwaters were rising quickly and seeping into our house. We went into panic mode and started doing everything we could to keep the water out: at one point, I stuffed my kids’ modeling clay into the cracks of the door. Eventually, we admitted defeat. There was nothing we could do to keep the water out. We wound up luckier than many of our neighbors, though. Our next-door neighbors had so much standing water in their house that they had to replace portions of their walls and insulation. Our only major loss was our carpeting. This flood was particularly stressful for us because we just moved here last fall. When we bought our house, we were assured that we weren’t in a flood plain, so we didn’t have any flood insurance until the day after the flood. Fixing that mistake was our first priority. “Recovering from a flood, especially without flood insurance, is a daunting task. I figured that the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society could help. I have been the fund drive coordinator at my commands for the past eight years, but I had never visited an office. After trumpeting the relief society’s horn for the better part of a decade, I figured I should see how they can help first-hand.” The Pensacola office of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, located aboard NAS Pensacola in Bldg. 191 at 91 Radford Blvd., is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays (except for holidays) and can be reached at 452-2300.

Italian ambassador visits NASWF By Jay Cope NASWF PAO

T

wo Italian officers received a special honor May 9, when their country’s ambassador to the United States attended their winging ceremony at Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF). His Excellency Claudio Bisogniero attended the ceremony in which Lt. j.g. Lorenzo Duranti and Lt. j.g. Matteo Ricasoli from the Italian Navy and 12 American aviators were designated helicopter pilots. NAS Whiting Field might seem like a strange place to receive a foreign dignitary at first glance, however, when looking closer at the flight instruction Training Air Wing Five performs, it becomes clearer. In addition to teaching 100 percent of the Navy, Marine and Coast Guard helicopter pilots, the wing is currently training 44 foreign students from

six different countries: Norway, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, India and France. Italy has the second largest number of students at 14. The bond between the two countries was a point of emphasis as Bisogniero addressed the assembled families and guests of the newly minted pilots. “Together we will continue to work and train, side-by-side in a long standing partnership for justice and freedom,” Bisogniero stated. The two-day visit also encompassed a reception with all the Italian students at Naval Aviation Schools Command in Pensacola

and an orientation detailing the training process all students go through in primary training with TraWing-5 including time in a T-6B “Texan II” simulator.

NASWF SAPR team preparing for future By Jay Cope NASWF PAO

NAS Whiting Field’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) team has worked diligently to raise awareness of the problems associated with sexual assault in the military and the resources available to victims. Now with Sexual Assault Awareness Month in the rear view mirror, one might think that the emphasis that was placed on the program throughout April would fade away until next year – one would be wrong. Reducing and perhaps preventing sexual assaults in the military will require a concerted leadership and deckplate engagement that remains consistent and steady. The program relies on adherence to the core of military values and behavioral standards – integrity, trust respect, fidelity and courage. Kristen Klein, NASWF’s Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), and Jennifer Walker,

to respond to aid a victim.” After bringing in a nationally known speaker about dating roles, hosting a “Step Up to Stop Sexual Assault” inforun, setting up seven outreach booths and training nine new victims’ advocates, the goal now is to keep the initiatives coming. Klein and Walker are already planning another “edutainment” event from CNIC, working to introduce more interactive discussions based training in new student indoctrination, initiating bySigns help get out the word to NASWF stander intervention training, scheduling a personnel on SAPR programs. sexual assault response drill and setting the installation’s civilian vctims’ advocate up another round of VA training to in(VA), are geared up to continue the push crease the pool of available candidates. All of the initiatives are important, but to remind everyone that sexual assault is keeping a steady watchbill of VAs is a pricontrary to those beliefs. “We are beginning to gain prominence ority for Klein due to the frequent rotawithin the command and people are tion of Sailors from the command and aware of us and the services we offer,” easing the rotation of service members Klein stated. “Things are going well now, performing the duties. “We don’t want the watchbill to be arbut we want to continue to increase awareness of the program and its ability duous for the Sailors, so we want to keep

comfortable with the numbers of VAs we have,” she said about performing more VA qualification training. “We’ve started training locally, and that’s good. People know who their VAs are and it helps to have them in the workplace and in other spots where Sailors gather.” This is consistent with the Navy’s concept that bystander intervention is vital in stopping this unwanted behavior. The chain of command is responsible for cultivating a climate wherein behaviors that lead to sexual assaults are not tolerated, but the VAs are the first responders in the event of an incident and the peers of Sailors and in a position to intervene. April was the first SAAM for both Klein and Walker and they were excited about the progress the program made during their short tenures, but they are also looking forward to their future successes. “Everything is coming along really well,” Walker said. “We want to continue to grow the program and make it better.”

duty, retired or the spouse of active duty or retire military. Child Support In calculating Child Support, in addition to your regular or retirement pay, the following pay is included: 1. Housing Allowance 2. Sea or Flight Pay 3. Retirement Pay 4. Social Security 5. V.A. Benefits (Yes, despite what others have told you, VA pay is included in child support calculations. Some of you will argue this point. Make an appointment and I will show you why it is included). You will still be governed by the child support requirements under the general Divorce/Child Support for the state of Florida. FYI: Based on the child support formula, it is almost always cheaper, if possible, to use day care.

A major problem which can affect both the payor and recipient of child support is when the support should begin. If you are involved in the initial Divorce proceeding the payor’s obligation begins, at the minimum, when the divorce is filed and/or you no longer live together with the child/children. The separation date may predate the filing of the divorce petition. You need an attorney’s advice to ascertain your obligation. If you wait until the final hearing, you may have to pay ongoing child support plus a court ordered amount each month to satisfy an arrearage plus interest. If you are active duty military, the JAG manual (navy page) will specify what you must pay to continue to support your family until further court order. A temporary hearing could reduce the amount of child support that you have been direct to may pay military orders or rules. If you are the spouse of an active duty military member, reservist or retiree, see Spouse/Military

or call for an appointment regarding the questions you may have. Retirement Alimony/Spousal Support In Florida, military retirement funds are an asset which is treated differently than other income related to Alimony/Spousal Support. The spouse of retired military personnel receives a pro rata share of the retirement funds. If the spouse remarries, the awarded share is still paid. If the military retiree dies, and an SBP is elected, it is still paid. You must make sure your lawyer uses the correct formula in order to establish the amount owed. DFAS has particular guidelines that must be met in order to accomplish the correct payment of spousal support.

Swim season:

make safety your priority PENSACOLA BEACH WARNING FLAGS

WATER CLOSED TO PUBLIC

High Hazard High surf/strong currents

Medium Hazard Moderate surf/ strong currents

Low Hazard Calm conditions, exercise caution

Dangerous marine life

From Vicki Balog MWR Aquatics Specialist and NASP Safety

A

s summer approaches, area swimmers and boaters are reminded: our waterways are beautiful and inviting places, but never let down your guard against water-related accidents.

At the beginning of the summer most of us are excited to get out in the sun and experience the beautiful waters surrounding our base. We may go boating from Sherman Cove over to the fort and do some fishing or walk around and when it’s hot we’ll do a little swimming. Sometimes we forget to think about the basics, forget to do a self-evaluation and forget to make some wise choices. These are some questions you can ask yourself and then selfevaluate the safety of your responses. • How far can I swim without stopping? How long can I float? Can you swim 5001,000 yards without putting your feet on the bottom or stopping? Can you float for at least 10 minutes without a flotation device? Those two skills can save your life if you are caught in an undertow or rip current. • Do I actually use a lifejacket or is it just stowed when I go on a boat? When you are unconscious because your boat flipped and knocked you in the head – that stowed lifejacket does not do you any good. Think about the children on the boat and make sure at least one adult is wearing a lifejacket, so if the boat flips/sinks there would be someone to help the children. Make sure if non-swimmers are on a dock that they have a lifejacket on – dock deaths are more common than you think. Make your decision when and where to use a lifejacket, a serious decision – a good tan line can seem pretty insignificant when faced with life and death or a child’s traumatic experience. Remember, life jackets must fit snugly to work. Choose an approved life jacket that fits properly. Wear it the right way, and wear the right type of life jacket for the activity you are involved in. Practice wearing a life jacket in the water and swimming with it. If on a boat one adult should be the designated safety person – if the boat rolls or if you have to abandon ship, someone needs to be with children right away. • Do I go to a public beach with lifeguards ... or do I prefer a secluded private beach?

Use the guarded beach – the guards are there for you and your families’ safety. The elevated chair helps them note tide changes, rip currents and the appearance of dangerous flora and fauna (jellyfish, sharks, rays etc.). No water is ever completely free from risk, but it is safest to swim where lifeguards are present. Lifeguards are trained to promote safe behavior around the water to prevent drowning. They watch for and help those in distress, providing rescue and medical assistance to those in need. Before entering the water at a beach with lifeguards, check with the lifeguards for safety advice about the location. Stay in that lifeguard protected area – lifeguards can only run so fast and so far. • Feet first ... first time? Jumping into the water off the boat or a dock? Even if there was nothing on the bottom that was dangerous yesterday – the bottom could have changed. Going in feet first-first time can save you and your family from a serious spinal injury. • Can your children turn over on to their back and yell for help? It does not come naturally but it is something that your children can learn in swim lessons. Swim lessons should be done every year – as a child’s body changes so will their swimming ability. Remember, there will never be a point when a child is safe in the water unsupervised. Those swim lessons may give the child who is in a dangerous situation enough skills to survive long enough for an adult to come help them. • Weather safety is simple in this area. “If you hear it – clear it, and if you see it – flee it.” If you hear thunder get away from the water, if you see lightning – go to designated shelter – get out of the weather. Do not wait for it to rain – danger is present before and after the rain. Obey all safety signs and warning flags. Signs and flags inform you about water dangers or show you where it is safer to swim. Signs can have important information about topics such as tide times and heights, under-

water hazards, currents, waves and other water hazards. Flags are often used to show lifeguarded areas, restricted or prohibited use, and designated areas such as “surfing only” or “no swimming.” Flags often have special colors such as red for danger or prohibited use. Always look for signs or flags before you enter the water. Find out what they mean and follow the warnings they provide. Know what the colors of the flags mean and respect their meaning before entering the water. Be watchful for flora and fauna. Man-o-war jellyfish, comb jellyfish, moon jellyfish, bull sharks and black tip sharks are found in our waters. Know how to recognize native species and how to prevent injury. We are only visitors – it is their territory. Swim in a familiar area – know the water and weather conditions before getting in the water. Cold water, weather, tides, surf, currents and other factors can have a major impact on open water safety. Wind and heavy rains can create dangerous water conditions. Local weather, as well as unseen weather that is far away, can produce rip currents at surf beaches and powerful, fast moving water in rivers and streams. Check weather conditions before you leave home and then again when you arrive. Stay alert for changes while you are at the site. Accidental drowning is the leading cause of death in children younger than age 5. A child can drown in the time it takes to answer the phone.Nonfatal incidents can cause brain damage that result in long-term disabilities ranging from memory problems and learning disabilities to the permanent loss of basic functioning (i.e. permanent vegetative state). For every child who dies from drowning, another four received emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.Nearly 90 percent of drowning deaths in children between the ages of 1 and 14 happen under the supervision of another person, usually a family member.
