Base Commanding Officer's Safety Message ahead of Memorial Day

Monday, May 27, 2019 will be set aside as a day of remembrance for those who have died in our Nation's service. Formerly known as Decoration Day, communities in America fly their national colors at half-mast and commemorate their heroes in ceremonies across the nation. I encourage you to find an opportunity to take part in one of these ceremonies.

This long holiday also marks the start of the 101 Critical Days of Summer; Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany personnel will have the opportunity to travel outside the area, dust off their grills and gather with family and friends in the warmer weather. However, we must plan our activities with safety precautions. We need to be proactive and avoid off-duty accidents during this Memorial Day.

I expect leaders at all levels to conduct thorough pre-holiday safety briefings with their personnel prior to the holiday weekend. Our achievable goal is no accidents, no serious injuries or incidents, no acts of misconduct and no loss of life during the holiday period. Everyone should be trained in the benefits of risk management, be sure to consider the risks you may take. Ultimately, please encourage your Marines to pause on Monday and reflect on those who, in giving their all, have given us so much.

Your hard work and support to the Marine Corps mission, our Marines, civilians and their family is appreciated. Have a great Memorial Day, enjoy the time with family and friends, be safe and stay Semper Fidelis.

MCLB Albany Prescribed Burning

Natural Resources will begin conducting prescribed burns across the installation beginning in February and running through July. Approximately 1,200 acres will be burned on MCLB Albany over the course of the next six months with the bulk of burning taking place between February and April. During this time expect to see fire activity and smoke, particularly during dry, sunny conditions.  Motorists should slow down when driving through controlled burn areas, especially if heavy smoke is present. Natural Resources conducts burning under weather conditions that minimize the impacts to those who work and live aboard the installation, however, residual smoke is unavoidable.  Please note that MCLB Albany's neighbors also conduct prescribed burns and generate smoke which may be present aboard the installation. Individuals with breathing conditions such as asthma should avoid exposure to smoke. Prescribed burning is an integral part of managing southern pine forests and maintaining healthy ecosystems. Without periodic controlled burning, forest health and wildlife habitat are negatively impacted and the accumulation of forestry debris could contribute to damaging wildfires.

 

Movie specials

All Thursday movie showings will feature $3 Thursdays (adult tickets). Small popcorn and large drink combo is also $3. Child tickets are $1.50. This promotion is open to anyone with base access. For more information, please contact 229-639-5227.

Field Day Safety Video

Field Day is a Marine Corps tradition that is conducted weekly to uphold good order and discipline. For many Marines living in the barracks, Field Day is crucial to developing good housekeeping habits that can carry on for the rest of their lives. 
 

This video brings attention to a separate aspect of Field Day; numerous false fire alarms that occur during Field Day at MCLB Albany.

 

Here are four safety rules Marines should keep in mind: 

 

1) Do not smoke or vape in your room.

2) Be careful when cleaning around fire alarms. Alarms can be triggered when hit.

3) Exercise extreme caution when cooking in your rooms. Too much smoke will set off the fire alarm.

4) Do not ignore fire alarms, Marines! Evacuate the building immediately. Utilize the fire escape plans that are in place.
