The path to energy security varies for every installation, the process of identifying the gaps is the same: develop an Installation Energy Security Plan. What began as a simple effort to meet congressional and Department of Defense policy requirements evolved into a herculean effort to conduct a comprehensive assessment of each installation’s critical energy requirements, utility system capabilities and energy security program management needs.

The aqueous-film forming foam, or AFFF, used in Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany Fire & Emergency Services’ trucks, until recently, had an unknown amount of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. This presented a possible health risk. Headquarters Marine Corps contracted out a company to drain out the old product and put in a new one. The fire trucks now have an AFFF containing less than 3% of the product. AFFF is mission-critical because it quickly extinguishes petroleum-based fires. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Jennifer Parks)
