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 preparing yourself and your family for all hazards.

You might have noticed the 31st Medical Group's varied hours at the beginning of the month due to their participation in Ready EAGLE. Check out this story to see what that means:
Survival. Evasion. Resistance. Escape. Long ago, these four concepts were only known separately. Then, everything changed when they came together to create a program we know as SERE. Only the SERE instructors, masters of all four concepts, could train our Airmen to survive under any conditions.
This week we highlight the SERE team from the 31st Operations Squadron. This team is responsible for keeping our Airmen ready in the event that they end up in a sticky situation. Whether they are teaching land navigation, water survival or a combative class, SERE is an Airman’s best friend in the worst of times. The team consists of Tech. Sgt. Mike Rutland and Staff Sgt. Dylan Sedillo who have both arrived at Aviano in the last two years. Rutland, originally from North Augusta in South Carolina, says he is inspired by his wife and kids and that his grandmother is his hero. Sedillo, a San Antonio native, is also inspired by his family but his hero, Chris Sharma, is a professional rock climber. A lesser known team yet extremely important, the SERE team is doing outstanding! Keep up the great work and continue ensuring our Airmen are prepared
For the 31st Communications Squadron cable and antenna systems flight, AKA the Cable Dawgs, routine climbing training is required so they can set up cables and antenna systems, keeping communication on base free flowing and uninterrupted. Would you make this climb?? 😵
August 19 - 25, Wyvern Weekender | Last chance for some Summer fun before school kicks off! What're your plans? #wyvernnation #WyvernWeekender
