Florida Department of Health, Escambia County Health Department issues mosquito-borne illness alert

Donations triple to Feds Feed Families

From Florida Department of Health

The Escambia County Health Department would like to remind the public to practice careful mosquito bite prevention practices, especially during this very rainy summer season. The second human case of West Nile virus this year has been reported to the health department. This indicates that there is an imminent risk of additional persons becoming infected with West Nile virus if bitten by a mosquito. Being bitten by mosquitoes may result in infection with the virus. Symptoms of infection can range from mild to severe, including development of diseases such as meningitis or encephalitis. Those most at risk for the infection are those who spend a lot of time outdoors, especially during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active. Individuals who are immune compromised may be at higher risk of the most severe form of the infection. Dr. Susan Turner, associate director for the Escambia County Health Department, advises: “A second human case of West Nile Virus underscores the very high risk of additional persons becoming infected with the virus. As school starts, and evening outdoor sporting events resume, it is especially important to make every effort to protect yourself and those you love from mosquito bites.” The Escambia County Health Department encourages everyone to take all precautions to limit their exposure to mosquitoes by following Florida Department of Health recommendations. The Escambia County Health Department, in conjunction with the Florida Department of Health, will continue to perform surveillance for mosquito-borne infections. The Escambia County Mosquito Control Division has been notified. They are evaluating their

Members of the Pensacola military community have been very generous with donations to the 2012 Feds Feed Families campaign. The annual DoD campaign started June 1 onboard NAS Pensacola, Corry Station and Saufley Field and 64,860 pounds of food and essential items have been collected through Aug. 15, according to the NASP Chaplain’s Office. Monetary donations of $11,972 are also listed on a report released about the 2012 campaign. “The Pensacola military has really stepped up to the plate this year in supporting the FFF drive,” said NASP Pensacola Chaplain, Cmdr. David L. Gibson. “We have far sur-

passed the goal that Southeast Region gave us.” “We are way out ahead leading the Southeast Region and have already tripled the goal given to us by the region,” Gibson said. The 2012 goal for NASP was set at 20,000 pounds. As of Aug. 15, Pensacola was leading the region in donations. N A S Jacksonville was second with 20,920 pounds. The total donated in the Southeast Region stood at 147,035 pounds, with a goal of collecting 210,500 pounds for 2012. In 2011, the donation total came to 199,746 pounds for the Southeast Region, with Pensacola’s total reaching 17,142

NASP emergency services reach far and wide with recent deep Gulf, rooftop rescue calls By Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

Any life-threatening medical emergency is bad, but when it happens in rough weather more than 40 miles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, you’re in deep trouble. When a crewman onboard the F/V Reel Fish Bonez – a fishing boat out of Louisiana – began having heart attack symptoms Aug. 9, an emergency call went out to the U.S. Coast

Guard (Sector Mobile). A determination was made to dispatch a Coast Guard ship and crew from NAS Pensacola, with an EMS team from Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast (F&ESGC) onboard. Since USCG Cutter Bonito was unavailable, the NASP station’s 45-foot Response Boat-Medium (RB-M #45685) made the emergency call. Capable of reaching maximum speeds of more than 42

Navy Personnel Command leaders to meet with Pensacola-based Sailors From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

‘Readiness’ core to Navy training’s new motto, logo By Ed Barker NETC PAO

The Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) announced changes to its command logo Aug. 20. The new logo updates the graphic and includes the new training domain motto, “Fleet Readiness Starts Here.” Rear Adm. Don Quinn, NETC commander, implemented the changes as part of his leadership team’s strategic plan, which emphasizes clear communication to customers.

“I believe it’s important to clearly communicate what we are all about,” said Quinn. “We transform civilians into highly-skilled, combat-ready warfighters, and enable their career-long growth and development. The U.S. Navy is the finest maritime force the world has ever known and our training is a clear asymmetric advantage to that end. I absolutely believe that superb fleet readiness starts with superb training.” Training commands around the world

pounds. And you still have time to contribute. The campaign is scheduled to continue through Aug. 31. “We will be collecting food through Labor Day, so there is still time to contribute and make an impact on our community,” Gibson said. “We are working to hit 80,000 pounds, and it looks good for us to do so.” Feds Feeds Families encourages federal employees to bring nonperishable and household items to their offices for distribution to local food banks. This year, the Department of Defense set a collection goal of 1.5 million pounds. Since the program’s inception four years ago, Navy and Marine personnel have placed boxes at collection points across bases and aboard ships worldwide, ensuring that all DoN staff and service members have the chance

to donate. All non-perishable goods are appreciated, however, there are 12 items that on the campaign’s “most wanted” list including canned fruit in light syrup or its own juices, low sodium canned vegetables, multi-grain cereals, grains, canned proteins, soups, 100 percent juices, condiments, snacks, baking goods and hygiene items. What makes this drive unique, Gibson said, is that 100 percent of the donations stay in the local community. He said most of the NASP donations have gone to MANNA food bank, but other organizations in the area have benefited. DeDe Flounlacker, executive director of MANNA, said the Feds Feeds Families campaign has helped keep the organization’s six pantries stocked this summer as needs have increased. “It has really been a blessing,” she said. “Summer is a rough time. Our services are in high demand, but dona-

mosquito surveillance data to determine the appropriate methodology for enhancing their mosquito control activities. To protect yourself from mosquitoes, “Drain and Cover.” Drain standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying. • Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, flower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected. • Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that aren't being used. • Empty and clean birdbaths and pet’s water bowls at least once or twice a week. • Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that don’t accumulate water. • Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. Cover skin with clothing or repellent – stay indoors when mosquitoes are active; if you must go outside: • Clothing – Wear shoes, socks and long pants and long-sleeves. This type of protection may be necessary for people who must work in areas where mosquitoes are present. • Repellent – Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. • Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET (N,N-diethyl-mtoluamide), picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus and IR3535 are effective. • Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old. • Cover doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your house. • Repair broken screens on windows, doors, porches. Keep doors and windows closed if screens are not present. The Florida Department of Health continues to conduct statewide surveillance for mosquito-borne illnesses, including West Nile virus infections, Eastern equine encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis, malaria and dengue. For more information on West Nile virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides comprehensive information and resources at http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/index.htm.

well accustomed to rough seas but the speed necessitated by the emergency made for a memorable trip. The seas and weather conditions were rough, Beecher recalled. “Horrible. It was like ‘The Perfect Storm,’ ” Beecher said, referring to an action movie. “It was very rough. The F/V Reel Fish Bonez, which was trying to come in to meet us, was only making about five knots. There weren’t nice rollers, there were crossing seas from every direction,” he said. Waves the night of Aug. 9 were reported as 7-10 feet, noted F&ESGC Station Chief Chad Ross. The emergency responders were strapped down below decks in tight quarters. After a 42-mile, two-hour trip south into the Gulf, they arrived at the fishing boat, where the Coast Guard crew transferred the patient to their vessel. The F/V Reel Fish Bonez had come out of Louisiana the day before (Aug. 8) with a crew of three. The patient was a 54-yearold male, one of the deck hands. “We took the patient down below to start our assessment,” Beecher said. “We started our IVs and started a 12-lead ECG, which looks at the heart. Doing IVs can be tough when you’re in the back of an ambulance, so when you’re in 10-foot seas … it was hard. Luckily we didn’t have to do CPR on the patient.” After the team’s ALS assessment, the patient’s condition appeared to be more injury-related than cardiacrelated. The deck hand stated that he fell into an open hatch the day before and possibly hurt his ribs. “There have to be further tests; there’s only so much we can do in the field,” Beecher said. The Coast Guard and F&ESGC team brought the patient back to NAS Pensacola’s Coast Guard sta-

According to NETC Force Master Chief April Beldo, the new motto reflects a mission that the training command has been successful at for many years. “Throughout my career, I’ve seen fleet operations and the work that is done in our training commands to prepare Sailors for their roles on ships, in squadrons, at shore stations and in battalions around the globe,” said Beldo. “Our training command’s mission has been and will continue to be training maritime warriors. This change is simply stating in plain words what the world already knows – fleet readiness starts at NETC.”

tion, where he was taken to Baptist Hospital by ambulance and turned over to the nursing staff. The responders covered the distance at a speed of 15-20 knots on the return trip, Ross estimated. A helicopter recovery likely would have been used in conjunction with USCG Cutter Bonito, but there was a question about hoisting a Stokes basket to retrieve a patient in 10-to12-foot seas and stormy conditions from the deck of the smaller boat such as the RB-M, Ross said. “There was a pretty significant thunderstorm coming through, heading south at that time,” he said. Though the mission was out of the norm, Beecher was satisfied with the outcome. “Basically, that’s the versatility that the fire department has; we can go from riding fire trucks to the Coast Guard station in a matter of minutes and get on a boat and go 40 miles offshore and help rescue a patient,” he said. “It was good interagency cooperation. The Coast Guard knows it can utilize our paramedics here.” The F&ESGC lifesavers have worked with the Coast Guard before on other cardiac calls and emergencies on dive sites. Just a few days later, Aug. 13, F&ESGC responded to a call at the National Naval Aviation Museum. “They advised we had a patient who was unconscious on the roof area of Bldg. 3465 (the museum).” Contractors who were working on the building’s air conditioning

Additional briefs will focus on Navy force management initiatives including Fleet Ride Perform-to-Serve (FR-PTS), enlisted and officer community health and recent changes to Career Management System Interactive Detailing (CMS/ID) the web-based program enlisted Sailors use to review and apply for permanent change of station (PCS) orders.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer — Capt. Christopher W. Plummer Public Affairs Officer — Harry C. White The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. 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. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented. Gosport is an authorized newspaper published every Friday by Ballinger Publishing,

Items were prepackaged and placed at the front of the store so that shoppers could pick them up, pay for them at checkout and then place them directly into the collection box. “I have had numerous individuals tell me that they picked one up every time they went in,” Gibson said. “It helped them sustain giving across the entire length of the drive.” The main drop off locations for non-perishable food items are at the NAS Pensacola Quarterdeck, Bldg. 1500; Naval Aviation Memorial Chapel, Bldg. 1982; J.B.

system called for help when one of their workers passed out. August’s brutal heat had taken a toll on an experienced air conditioning worker. “It was extremely hot,” Beecher said. “We made our way up on some scaffolding which had been erected for the crews on the roof.” Firefighter Stephanie Peterson and Beecher made their way onto the roof, where they found a 51-yearold male patient “conscious, but out of it,” Beecher said. “He had extremely low blood pressure.” Tower 34, the F&ESGC 105-foot ladder truck, had gone on the call and its equipment was used to lower the patient – who was unable to use the scaffolding – via a Stokes basket. IVs had been started on the roof, along with oxygen, in order to get as much fluid as possible into the patient. “We considered it heat exhaustion; that he was almost on the verge of heat stroke,” Beecher said. “Luckily we got to him in time to give him the fluids we gave him. We packed his underarms and neck with ice packs and got him into a cool environment. And when we got him into the ambulance he came back around and was talking.” The patient was taken to Baptist Hospital and was expected to make a full recovery. The victim was a person who normally works on roofs in a hot environment – which goes to show the need for hydration and remaining alert to heat exhaustion and heat stroke dangers.

The changes to CMS/ID are part of the Navy’s coordinated effort to aggressively address gaps at sea and place Sailors with the right experience levels and skill sets into high-priority Fleet billets. Detailers will fill all advertised billets each cycle so it is important that Sailors understand how this may impact them. The team will conduct briefs at Corry Station, Aug. 28; and at Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP), Aug. 29 and 30. Sailors should contact their command career counselor for times and locations. Spouses are also encouraged to attend. The team will present a Command Ombudsman/Spouse Career Information brief Aug. 29 onboard NASP.

Power of attorney valuable tool for military spouse ing, buying or managing real estate; and shipping or receiving household goods. Military families can visit their closest legal office, located at all local bases, with their ID for a power of attorney. One of the hardest parts of being a military spouse is doing so much alone, but at least a power of attorney authorizes those left behind to manage the household and legal issues effectively.

By Michelle Galvez Blue Star Families

Sometimes the military feels like a revolving door, with new friends coming and going and old ones reappearing along the way. All the challenges of military life are also opportunities to expand the friend list and I’m not just talking about the social media kind. I’ve got acquaintances I’ve known from three different duty stations and socialize with politely when we Michelle Galvez run into one another at command events. There are people I network with who I’ve met at various volunteer jobs, schools, churches and parties. Neighbors, especially in base housing, become fast friends when it comes to borrowing an ingredient or dog-sitting. Then there are the friends who are always up for a mid-deployment mom’s night out or whom I would leave my children with at midnight on my way to the emergency room. But I think this military spouse’s very best friend might be her power of attorney (POA). That handy dandy instrument is renewable, specialized, general, good for a year and handy for doing everything from opening

I also grant a power of attorney on an ongoing basis – to a local friend to immediately take care of my children should anything happen to me in my husband’s absence and to a relative to do so long term if necessary. My husband used to authorize me to act on his behalf every time he deployed. The past few years though, he has been gone more than he is here, so part of our pre-trip planning is check-

ing the expiration date of the POA in the safe. This week, my spouse came home with four different powers of attorney. The all-purpose general needed renewing and during one of his upcoming trips I’m going to buy a house, stop the base housing allotment and leave our daughter in the care of a friend. His friendly command legal officer wrote them up and notarized them for free. There are two kinds of power

of attorney: general and special. According to the Navy Legal Service website, the general provides a designee with all the power you possess to act with respect to any matter. If that’s too much power or a bank or organization requires specific authorization, there are several kinds of special powers of attorney available too. Those include selling, registering, shipping or transferring title on a vehicle; in loco parentis or medical power of attorney; check cashing; sell-

NavScolEOD participates in ‘Spartan Challenge’ Story, photo by Ens. Elizabeth Allen Center for Explosive Ordnance Public Affairs

E

GLIN AIR FORCE BASE – More than 70 instructors and students from the Naval School of Explosive Ordnance Disposal (NavScolEOD) discovered their physical limits Aug. 7 as they participated in the Spartan Challenge. The challenge is a series of physically demanding events and is a reference to the book “Gates of Fire” by Steven Pressfield, which describes how approximately 300 Spartans faced certain death at the Battle of Thermopylae in the year 480 BC. The NavScolEOD participants did not face certain death at this challenge, but did push themselves physically throughout the humid morning. “I must say, I was a little spent and hungry,” said NavScolEOD CMDCM Stacey McClain following his participation in the challenge. “I was pretty happy to have done it in a respectable time.” The events began at the NavScolEOD Air Force detachment building on Eglin Air Force Base with a three-mile march wearing rucksacks weighing at least 40 pounds, followed by five rounds of 10 pull-ups, 20 push-ups, 30 sit-ups, 40 air squats and a 400-meter run, all followed by a three-mile return run. “I was tired afterwards, but I like

challenges and it was good physical training for me,” said EN2 David Smith, a Navy student in the Underwater Ordnance Division. “It was really good to see the master chiefs and the Air Force EOD techs participating with us.” SN Connor Antkowski, a student at the Underwater Ordnance Division, was the first person to finish the challenge, completing it in one hour, 19 minutes. “I chose to participate to represent the Navy in the combined effort with the Air Force and Army EOD community,” said Antkowski. “It felt good to see the Navy come in first and to see how our physical training has paid off.” The challenge was organized as a way to bring the services together at the jointservice training command, and to build on the camaraderie of the students and instructors, who all have a common bond – being EOD technicians. “We did this to pull all four services together at NavScolEOD, and to build

on the brotherhood and sisterhood between the joint services,” said Chief Master Sgt. Al Schneider, superintendent of the school’s Air Force detachment. “I came out here today to mentor and support our EOD teammates.” The challenge was followed by breakfast to help replenish the calories spent throughout the morning. “Participating in this challenge was the right thing to do,” added McClain. “We preach health and fitness to our students and if I cannot do it, how can I expect the troops to do it? I believe this is a great way to lead by example, and it helps to motivate the young

DANTES forges way ahead with strategic plan By Ed Barker NETC PAO

The Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) focused on the future of education in the Department of Defense (DoD) at a strategic planning offsite Aug. 1315. Rear Adm. Don Quinn, commander of the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), spoke during the conference kick-off and addressed the importance of strategic assessment. “I am a huge fan of strategic planning because it forces you to work through your assumptions and focus on what’s important,” said Quinn. “What DANTES provides is crucial to our military’s success, and education is more important than ever. Training prepares you for the known, but education prepares you for the unknown – it gives you the ability to adapt

and change with your environment.” DANTES Director Dr. Carol Berry challenged her team to identify opportunities for improving the DANTES busi-

ness model and refining the mission and vision for military voluntary education. “This is our first strategic plan, which allows us to establish our long-range goals and publicize our programs,” said Berry. “We focused on how to execute our strategy, mission and vision so we can reach not only our customers at the services and base educational centers, but also the end user – the

service members whose future depends on it.” Deliverables from the conference included proposed mission and vision statements based on DANTES core values and guiding principles. “We have a great foundation from which we can build,” said Berry. “In the coming weeks, we will refine these inputs into an executable strategic plan that will guide us today, tomorrow and into the future, serving our military and enabling profound changes one service member at a time.” DANTES supports off-duty voluntary education programs of DoD and conducts special projects and developmental activities in support of education-related DoD functions.

BBB: Don’t let scammers ‘count on your support’ From BBB of Northwest Florida

Scammers are taking advantage of this year’s Presidential election, using everything from robocalls offering a “free cruise” for taking a political survey to promises that President Barack Obama will pay your utility bill as bait. Better Business Bureau Serving Northwest Florida warns voters to be on the lookout for scams that are likely to continue as we get closer to the presidential election. Some of the most common election-related scams making the rounds: • President Obama will pay your utility bill if you pay an enrollment fee. Potential victims have been contacted through fliers, social media, text messages, phone calls and even door-

to-door solicitations with claims that the president is providing credits or payments for utility bills. Scammers claim they need the customers’ Social Security and bank routing numbers to arrange the payments. In return for an “application fee,” customers are given a phony bank routing number that will supposedly pay their utility bills. In reality, there’s no money. Customers believe they paid their bills when in fact they have not. And even worse still, they’ve given away everything needed for identity fraud. • Support the (fill in the blank) campaign today.

A ‘wet’ summer for STARBASE-Atlantis level two Story, photo by Ed Barker NETC PAO

T

he summer of 2012 in Pensacola has been wet in more ways than one, as veterans of the Navy’s Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) program, STARBASE-Atlantis, experienced the world of hydrodynamics in the STARBASE level two program at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola Aug. 13-16. “STARBASE-Atlantis level two is offered each summer on NAS Pensacola and offers open enrollment for kids that have already completed their initial training during STARBASE level one,” said Donna Eichling, director of the STARBASE-Atlantis programs at NAS Pensacola and NAS Whiting Field. “It builds upon the same STEM fundamentals, but changes the concentration from air and aerodynamics to water and hydrodynamics. We also include navigation and mapping, plus the tours are expanded with areas that the kids haven’t seen before.” The main classroom projects for level two are designing, building and testing a submersible that can descend and resurface under its own power. The children also return to building rockets as they did in level one, but this time their rocket is powered by air and water instead of a rocket motor. “The level two kids are given the freedom to design their sub with a broad spectrum of over 20 different materials,” said Greg Adams, STARBASE instructor. “The end result of submerging and then resurfacing without assistance is the only requirement and the subs range from super-simple to very involved. Successes and failures are both great learning experiences as the

STARBASE-Atlantis summer students “Conan” and “Calculator” (right side, left to right) watch as their submersible experiment rises from the bottom of the test tank during the STARBASE level-two session that focuses on hydrodynamics.

kids share their designs with each other.” One team that had a successful submersible was the brother and sister team of Micah and Susanna, going by the callsigns of “Thunder Fist” and “Flying Tiger.” “Level two has been a lot of fun and different from the first time we came to STARBASE-Atlantis,” said Micah. “Many of the concepts are the same but the applications are different.

NASWF, local fire department participate in drill Photos, story from NASWF PAO

Naval Air Station Whiting Field exercised its emergency response capabilities fully recently when the base executed a casualty drill that called into action elements from the base and local agencies. The exercise was evaluated by the Commander Navy Region Southeast Regional Training Team, and it was one of four drills the base will perform this year. The scenario entailed an emergency landing for an aircraft that went awry when a T-6B Texan crashed into the Navy Outlying Landing Field (NOLF)

“I have never seen a larger scale exercise here before. It was phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal. These kinds of exercises help us make ourselves better. It was an extremely impressive drill.” — Cmdr. Robin Higgs CNRSE Regional Training Team senior officer Choctaw air traffic control tower as well as emergency response vehicles stationed nearby with teams inside. With communications and the localized fire fighting capability down, a simulated

911 call from the community initiated the response. Within minutes, teams from nearby NOLF Santa Rosa, HolleyNavarre Fire Department and Lifeguard Ambulance Services were on site to deal with the situation. “We have to be prepared for anything and everything. That’s what Fire and Emergency Services (Gulf Coast) does,” said Glen Greenough, the on-scene incident commander and one of the assistant

fire chiefs of operations for NAS Whiting Field’s fire department. “We have a great working relationship with the local communities, and a drill like this helps us strengthen our partnerships with our colleagues in Santa Rosa County.” Exercising the mutual aid agreements with the various agencies in Santa Rosa County was one of the main goals of the drill. County and municipal emergency service teams will assist NAS Whiting Field assets as necessary just as the Whiting Field Fire Department will respond to emergencies out in the local communities. Past drills have tested the mutual aid agreements in various locations within the five-county area where NAS Whiting Field has assets, but this is the first time in recent history the unit has worked with Holley-Navarre. The team from NOLF Santa Rosa arrived first and immediately proceeded to combat the aircraft fire, simulated with a helo fire trainer. Within minutes, the Holley-Navarre team showed up and attacked the air traffic control tower structural fire. The teams also worked to remove injured personnel from the scene and to prepare them for evacuation to local hospitals. Behind the scenes, the event also incorporated an activation of the Emergency Control Center, and initiated the administrative response procedures such as notification of next of kin

and counseling for personnel through the chaplains’ office and Fleet and Family Support Center. It was a complex drill that tested nearly every facet of NAS Whiting Field’s emergency response checklist. “I have never seen a larger scale exercise here before,” Cmdr. Robin Higgs, the Regional Training Team senior officer who observed the drill, said. “It was phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal. These kinds of exercises help us make ourselves better. It was an extremely impressive drill.” Not everything was perfect and the event wrap-up emphasized the lessons learned for future training sessions or live responses. With interagency coordination and extra elements imposed on the scenario, no one expected it would go completely as planned, but that’s the purpose of training, according to NAS Whiting Field Commanding Officer Capt. Matthew Coughlin — to prepare for the unexpected. “We have a great safety record here, but some time, something bad could happen. This was a difficult exercise and we tested a lot of moving pieces,” he said during the drill debrief to the response teams. “Thank you for your vigilance and your participation. I was very pleased with what I saw out here today.”

In September, remember: have a plan From www.ready.gov

Preparing makes sense. The likelihood that you and your family will survive a house fire depends as much on having a working smoke detector and an exit strategy, as on a well-trained fire department. The same is true for surviving a terrorist attack or another emergency. We must have the tools and plans in place to make it on our own, at least for a period of time, no matter where we are when disaster strikes. Just like having a working smoke detector, preparing for the unexpected makes sense. Get ready now. you have options in an emergency. If you have a car, keep at least a half tank of gas in it at all times. Become familiar with alternate routes as well as other means of transportation out of your area. If you do not have a car, plan how you will leave if you have to. Take your emergency supply kit, unless you have reason to believe it is contaminated and lock the door behind you. Take pets with you if you are told to evacuate, however, if you are going to a public shelter, keep in mind they may not be allowed inside. If you believe the air may be contaminated, drive with your windows and vents closed and keep the air conditioning and heater turned off. Listen to the radio for instructions. Know Emergency Plans at School and Work. Think about the places where your family spends time: school, work and other places your family frequents. Talk to your children’s schools and your employer about emergency plans. Find out how they will communicate with families during an emergency. If you are an employer, be sure you have an emergency preparedness plan. Review and practice it with your employees. A community working together during an emergency also makes sense.

Get a kit Get a kit of emergency supplies. Be prepared to improvise and use what you have on hand to make it on your own for at least three days, maybe longer. While there are many things that might make you more comfortable, think first about fresh water, food and clean air. Consider two kits. In one, put everything you will need to stay where you are and make it on your own. The other should be a lightweight, smaller version you can take with you if you have to get away. You’ll need a gallon of water per person per day for drinking and sanitation. Include in the kits a three-day supply of non-perishable foods that are easy to store and prepare such as protein bars, dried fruit or canned foods. If you live in a cold weather climate, include warm clothes and a sleeping bag for each member of the family. Some potential terrorist attacks could send tiny microscopic “junk” into the air. Many of these materials can only hurt you if they get into your body, so think about creating a barrier between yourself and any contamination. It’s smart to have something for each member of the family that covers their mouth and nose, such as two to three layers of a cotton T-shirt, handkerchief or towel or filter masks, readily available in hardware stores. It is very important that the mask or other material fit your face snugly so that most of the air you breathe comes through the mask, not around it. Do whatever you can to make the best fit possible for children. Also, include duct tape and heavyweight garbage bags or plastic sheeting that can be used to seal windows and doors if you need to create a barrier between yourself and any potential contamination outside.

Make a plan Make a plan for what you will do in an emergency. Plan in advance what you will do in an emergency. Be prepared to assess the situation. Use common sense and whatever you have on hand to take care of yourself and your loved ones. Develop a Family Communications Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so plan how you will contact one another and review what you will do in different situations. Consider a plan where each family member calls, or e-mails, the same friend or relative in the event of an emergency. It may be easier to make a long-distance phone call than to call across town, so an out-of-town contact may be in a better position to communicate among separated family members. Be sure each person knows the phone number and has coins or a prepaid phone card to call the emergency contact. You may have trouble getting through, or the phone system may be down altogether, but be patient. Depending on your circumstances and the nature of

the attack, the first important decision is whether you stay put or get away. You should understand and plan for both possibilities. Use common sense and the information you are learning here to determine if there is immediate danger. Watch television and listen to the radio for official instructions as they become available. Create a Plan to Shelter-in-Place. There are circumstances when staying put and creating a barrier between yourself and potentially contaminated air outside, a process known as sheltering-in-place and sealing the room can be a matter of survival. If you see large amounts of debris in the air, or if local authorities say the air is badly contaminated, you may want to shelter-inplace and seal the room. Consider precutting plastic sheeting to seal windows, doors and air vents. Each piece should be several inches larger than the space you want to cover so that you can duct tape it flat against the wall. Label each piece with the location of where it fits. Use all available information to assess the situation. If you see large amounts of debris in the air, or if local authorities say the air is badly contaminated, you may want to shelter-in-place. Quickly bring your family and pets inside, lock doors, and close windows, air vents and fireplace dampers. Immediately turn off air conditioning, forced air heating systems, exhaust fans and clothes dryers. Take your emergency supplies and go into the room you have designated. Seal all windows, doors and vents. Understand that sealing the room is a temporary measure to create a barrier between you and contaminated air. Watch TV, listen to the radio or check the Internet for instructions. Create a Plan to Get Away. Plan in advance how you will assemble your family and anticipate where you will go. Choose several destinations in different directions so

Be informed, get involved Some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as assembling a supply kit and developing a family communications plan, are the same for both a natural or man-made emergency. However, there are significant differences among potential terrorist threats, such as biological, chemical, explosive, nuclear and radiological, which will impact the decisions you make and the actions you take. By beginning a process of learning about these specific threats, you are preparing yourself to react in an emergency. Go to www.ready.gov to learn more about potential terrorist threats and other emergencies or call 1-800-BE-READY (1-800-237-3239) for a free brochure. Be prepared to adapt this information to your personal circumstances and make every effort to follow instructions received from authorities on the scene. With these simple preparations, you can be ready for the unexpected. After preparing yourself and your family for possible emergencies, take the next step and get involved in preparing your community. Join Citizen Corps, which actively involves citizens in making our communities and our nation safer, stronger and better prepared. We all have a role to play in keeping our hometowns secure from emergencies of all kinds. Citizen Corps works hard to help people prepare, train and volunteer in their communities.

Volunteers to spend the day cleaning up the beach Sept. 15 From the National Park Service

Gulf Islands National Seashore is getting ready for the annual International Coastal Cleanup. NAS Pensacola has also participated in the project for the past 20 years. Coordinated by the Ocean Conservancy, the cleanup has grown into a major worldwide event. Last year, nearly 500,000 international volunteers lent a hand to clean up litter and marine debris from the shores, lakes and rivers of more than 70 nations, from Argentina to Vietnam. Last year locally, close to 300 volunteers cleaned beaches in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. “Our goal wasn’t just to clean

the beaches, it was to educate people about keeping the beaches clean in the first place,” said Park Ranger Beckie Mims. “Some pieces of debris can outlive the oldest fish in the sea.” This year’s annual beach cleanup at Gulf Islands National Seashore is scheduled for 8 a.m. to noon Sept. 15. Volunteers are advised to wear closed-toe shoes, gloves, sunscreen and hats. Bringing water also is advised. Families, individuals, businesses and community groups can choose their favorite locations to register and receive trash bags, data cards and information. Locations for this year’s cleanup include:

• Santa Rosa Area – Opal Beach, sound side. • Perdido Key Area – Meet at Johnson Beach picnic area by the bulletin board located 0.5 miles east of State Road 292. The entrance fee at Perdido Key will be waved for volunteers assisting with the coastal cleanup. • Naval Live Oaks Area – Meet at the south side picnic pavilion, located just east of the visitor center, two miles east of Gulf Breeze on U.S. Highway 98. • Fort Pickens Area – Meet at Langdon Beach, Gulf side. For more information call or email Mims at 934-2631 or beckie_breeding-mims@nps.gov. You can also get details by visiting www.nps.gov/guis.

A Japanese celebration Event to feature Taiko drummers, traditional food and dance By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

BonFest 2012, a Japanese cultural festival, is scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. tomorrow, Aug. 25, at the Bayview Community Center, 2000 East Lloyd St. This is the sixth year for the event, according to festival organizer Hatsue Miki. She said about 200 people attended last year’s event, which is hosted by several Japanese groups. The festival will feature music, food and games. Guests will learn about Japanese culture. There will be a Taiko drum workshop, unique costumes, vendors, Japanese food,

traditional Japanese folk dancing and other cultural activities. In Japan, the traditional summer celebration called Bon Odori. Bon Odori is more than just eating, drinking and dancing. It is a time to honor one’s ancestors. Obon or Bon is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the departed (deceased) spirits of one’s ancestors. The Buddhist custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors’ graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars. The holiday shares some similarities with the predom-

inantly Mexican observance of el dia de los Muertos. It has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon Odori. Pensacola’s BonFest is planned as a way to introduce traditional Japanese cultural perspectives and to build intercultural relations by bringing together people from across cultural and social backgrounds. Admission is free, and everyone is invited to visit and join in on the fun. For more information call, Hatsue Miki at 602-4385 or go to http://bonfestpensacola.weebly. com.
