Are You Ready?

WHY SHOULD I PREPARE?

Everyone should have a plan.

Disasters come in many forms; explosions, hurricanes, tornadoes, and others. Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany these disasters. Individuals, families, and communities should know what to do in the event of a fire and where to seek shelter during a tornado. Knowing what to expect and how to prepare makes any crisis more manageable. 


 

START PREPARING TODAY

Take these three simple steps to prepare --

Get a Kit - 
Assemble a collection of first aid supplies, food, water, medicines, and important papers that can sustain you and your family until the emergency passes.

Make a Plan - You and your family members may not be together when an emergency strikes. Planning ahead will improve your chances of keeping in touch, staying safe, and quickly reuniting.

Be Prepared - Anticipate emergencies most likely to affect you and your family. This guide will help you think through the basics of preparingyourself and your family for all hazards.

[SOUND ON!] The 31st Fighter Wing has grown after adding three squadrons to the mission. Here's a glimpse of how a diverse set of Wyvern Warriors execute their jobs to complete the United States Air Force main mission of air superiority. #WyvernWarriors #WeAreNATO #USAFE #USAF #Military #AirSuperiority #31FW
Keep an eye out this week for the stateside listing for Airmen and families with a DEROS of Nov/Dec/Jan! #MilitaryFamilies #AFPC #CONUS #Moving
Wyvern Warriors, last week we had the opportunity to meet the Chief of Staff of the Air Force, Gen. David Goldfein, listen to his take on Air Force priorities and get a photo with him! If you were one of the lucky ones and had your photo taken with the CSAF, you can find you photo at: #JointWarfighter #Readiness #Aviano #Deterrence #BaseTour #Revitalize #Selfie" target="_blank">https://www.flickr.com/photos/avianoairbase/albums/72157669047088827 #JointWarfighter #Readiness #Aviano #Deterrence #BaseTour #Revitalize #Selfie</a>
Team Aviano welcomed back a former commander of the 555th Fighter Squadron, better known as Chief of Staff of the Air Force General David L. Goldfein. Here are some of his remarks to the amazing men and women of the 31st Fighter Wing.
We had an awesome 4th of July celebration. Families and neighbors from all around the Aviano area came to celebrate. From hot dogs to hamburgers, Italian BBQ & Gelato, music & fireworks, everyone had a blast! Thank you to those who helped make this happen. Tag your friends and families. #independenceday #family #knowyourneighbors #fireworks #BBQ #rainorshinewearedoingthis 31st Force Support Squadron AFN Aviano
Remembrance memorial leaves a lasting memory
Team Aviano, join us on base Wednesday for our 4th of July celebration. For those who sponsored their Italian friends and neighbors, food and fun starts at 4 p.m. and finishes out at 10:10 p.m. with an amazing fireworks show. Hope to see you all there! For more info go to 31st Force Support Squadron. #Fireworks #Food #Family #Fun #FourthofJuly #USA #Birthday
Team Aviano&#39;s strength comes from more than our military members and their families. We&#39;re made up of more than 700 local national employees, who we rely on to execute our mission. One of those 700 is Mr. Gianni Vignaduzzi, who&#39;s worked with the 31st Security Forces Squadron for over 23 years. With more than two decades on the base, Vignaduzzi said, "The Air Force is truly a big family where the work environment is a perfect mix of hard-working, dedicated professionals yet allows you to meet a wide range of diverse and interesting individuals." He has a wife and daughter, loves pasta with ragu sauce and calabrese hot peppers, enjoys running and reading, and although he is more of a hockey fan, he thinks Belgium may have a good shot this year at winning the FIFA World Cup. Thank you Mr. Vignaduzzi for all you do for the team! #Aviano #Italy #TeamAviano #TeamWork #USAF
Every now and then, we get to join together and work with the 173rd Brigade Support Battalion detachment here. Here is a pic of us dropping the team off at work. #JointWarfighter #ArmyStrong #USAF #SkySoldiers #StrongEurope #EUCOM #Readiness
Last week, Chief Edwin Ludwigsen received his stamp of approval from one of Aviano&#39;s postal clerks. A1C Raphael Maldonado showed Chief just how much it takes to get mail to our Wyverns. #OutAndAbout #Postal #KnowYourMil #KnowYourMail #SupriseDelivery #31FSS #ChiefLud #CommandChief #WyvernsGettingItDone
Our POL (petroleum, oil and lubricants) Airmen performed a hot refuel on a 56th Rescue Squadron HH60 Pavehawk for the first time ever. A hot refuel is when an aircraft is gassed up while the engines are still running. #USAF #Aviano #31FW #HH60 #RescueSquadron #Airpower #USAFE
It was great to assist the 173rd Brigade Support Battalion in their recent training during exercise Bayonet Strike. Maintaining combat readiness allows U.S. military units to be joint warfighters and deploy to locations all over the world. #WeAreNATO #KnowYourMil #JointWarfighter #Readiness #Army #USAF #Military #EUCOM #SkySoldiers #StrongEurope
You want to see a Colonel jump out of a helicopter and land on a flightline? This was the final step in realigning the 56th and 57th Rescue Squadrons to the 31st Fighter Wing.

After the most recent NATO Carousel, we know our Airmen are prepared to respond to a number of emergency situations. NATO Carousels are training events with several stations set up for Airmen to rotate around and learn the necessary skills for an emergency. #Readiness #MilitaryTraining #CPR #FirstResponders #PARSweeps #Security #SFS #CES #Winning
What better way to make friends with our Italian community than through friendly competition? USAF, ITAF, Aviano and Pordenone athletes competed on base in a calcio (soccer), pallacanestro (basketball) and pallavolo (volleyball) tournament. Check back with us on the 4th of July to find out who won! #USAF #ITAF #WeAreNATO #Pordenone #Aviano #Soccer #Basketball #Volleyball
In exercises, Airmen continuously train for worst-case scenarios. Emergency responders practiced a simulated Active Shooter Exercise to hone their skills and train with other base units. #AvianoNow #baseexercise #WeAreNato #KnowYourMil #firstresponder #AlwaysReady
