Default Air Force Logo Keep safety in mind in seasonal, holiday plans
Temperature changes, shorter daylight hours, increased travel and emotional overload are hallmarks of the fall, winter and holiday seasons that safety officials say result in preventable mishaps. “It’s as simple as taking the same safety practices and procedures we use on duty and applying them to our off-duty activities,” said Maj. Gen. John T Rauch, Air Force Chief of Safety. Every Airman should maintain a safety culture, he said, from following the fundamentals on duty to using sound risk management and making smart decisions off duty.

A new type of flexible body armor developed through a collaboration between the Air Force and Naval Research Laboratories is 50 percent lighter than current body armor. The design makes the use of a ceramic ball matrix encapsulated in foam material, which is then backed with multiple layers of polyethylene sheets. (U.S. Air Force photo by Marisa Novobilski/released) Flexing in the line of fire: Lightweight, flexible body armor for the future force
In the line of fire, protective body armor plays a critical role in survival. Hard-plated, rigid and heavy, today’s National Institute of Justice Type IV body armor -- the kind that protects warfighters against armor piercing bullets -- defends the wearer, but adds weight and bulk that a fast-moving operator could do without.

Summertime can be an enjoyable time to relax and recharge with family and friends. These enjoyable summertime activities do not come without hazards. Too often, what was thought to be risk-free fun turns into a not so enjoyable injury or accident. In fact, in recent years, exciting and fun activities like swimming, rock climbing, mountain biking and canoeing have needlessly claimed Airmen’s lives.
