Roaring '21's Summer Safety Campaign
ROARING '21's SUMMER SAFETY CAMPAIGN
Help us to celebrate the 101 Cautious Days of Summer 2021 by shooting a short video on summer safety.
The best videos will be featured on the Fort Belvoir Facebook page. The 101 Critical Days of Summer is the time from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and this is usually when we have the most accidents, injuries, and deaths.
After the COVID lockdown, we are concerned about the "Roaring '21's Summer". We want to help folks to remain cautious and COVID-free. Our goal is that each member of our community comes back to us safe and sound after the summer. We work hard and play hard. We also work to keep the employees healthy and safe at work, so they go home each night in the same condition (or better) that they arrived in. An employee or family member that is hurt off-duty affects the on-duty performance of others.
