101 Critical Days Of Summer
Memorial Day weekend is past us. Traditionally we take the opportunity to enjoy a variety of summertime activities such as barbeques, time at the lake and va-cations. Memorial Day also kicks off the 101 Critical Days of Summer. The 101 Criti-cal Days of Summer represent the time period between Memorial Day and Labor Day; tragically, a period where the Air Force historically loses a great number of itsfamily to avoidable accidents.Many will be on vacation during the summer months and pack up the family anddrive to visit their extended families. Others choose to gas up the boat and take thegang out water skiing or fishing. We all need and deserve time away from the stress-ors of work. By using Operational Risk Management, some common sense and fol-lowing some standard safety practices individuals can ensure that each of them,their families have a safe and enjoyable summer.
