KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. (AFPN) -- You don't have to be a safety professional to benefit from the products and services of the Air Force Safety Center. Commanders and airmen in every career field have something to gain by checking out the material on the Safety Center's Web site.

That's the message senior officials here want airmen everywhere to know.

"Safety is vital in the lives of all airmen, and we have resources that can help everyone in the Air Force," said Bud Redmond, Air Force deputy chief of safety and executive director of the Safety Center.

"In addition to material that supports the safety pros out in the field, such as statistical data on mishaps, trend analysis and year-to-date summaries of fatalities and injuries, we've posted a collection of tools that will help commanders and supervisors at all levels meet the challenges of keeping their people safe while accomplishing the mission. Just about any safety information that anyone would want to know is available on our Web site," Redmond said

The site has a video on driving safety featuring a NASCAR driver; current and back issues of Flying Safety Magazine, Wingman and Weapons Journal; downloadable safety posters; public service announcements; a list of available training courses; and more.

"With warmer weather fast approaching, our people will be traveling and spending more time outdoors," said Redmond. "That's why the Air Force runs the '101 Critical Days of Summer' safety campaign each year, to raise awareness and help people prepare for and take part in their activities with an eye toward safety."

The Safety Center has an online section dedicated to the '101 Days' campaign.

"We encourage all airmen to visit our site and review what's there," Redmond said. "If you're looking for something and don't see it, send an e-mail or call one of the phone numbers listed and talk it over with our staff experts. Most likely, we'll be able to fulfill your request. If you need the information, chances are good that others are seeking it, too, so your request will help more than just your own organization."
