CliThe top priority of the garrison safety office is to safeguard and protect service members, their families, civilian employees, retirees and Army property, as well as to create the safest workplace and living environment possible. Safety office personnel advise, audit and assist the Garrison Commander, Directorates, and Support Offices in executing their safety and occupational health program in order to protect the mission, prevent injury and damage to equipment and comply with laws and regulations.

The garrison safety office manages the following programs for the installation:

Army Traffic Safety Training Program (ATSTP)  This program includes the mandated Motorcycle and Privately Owned Vehicle training required by the Army.   Class availability and enrollment is through AIRS following your unit's training policy.  The local program manager can be reached at (254) 287-3343.  A location map for the ATSTP Campus may be accessed here: ATSTP CAMPUS.  Click here to access the new BRC Course letter.

EXPLOSIVES SAFETY PROGRAM:

Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) Awareness: Unexploded ordnance is an explosive device (bombs, bullets, shells, grenades, land mines, missiles, etc.) that did not explode when it was originally fired, and still has the potential to explode even decades after it was initially used. 

To protect yourself, your family, friends, and neighbors, follow the 3R’s of Explosives Safety for UXO: RECOGNIZE when you have encountered a munition or UXO; RETREAT from the area and do not touch, move, or disturb the item; REPORT the situation to the local police (911).  For more information on UXO, contact the Fort Cavazos Garrison Safety Office at 254-287-3459.
 

Amnesty Program:  The Fort Cavazos Amnesty Program encourages individuals to act responsibly by providing a means to safely recover military ammunition with no questions asked (Limited to HC 1.4..50 CAL and below).  It is not intended to circumvent normal ammunition turn-in procedures.  

There are currently three amnesty boxes located on Fort Cavazos. One at the Ammunition Supply Point (ASP) on west Fort Cavazos; one at the Ammunition Holding Area on Main Post; and one at North Fort Cavazos.

 

Arms Room Ammunition Storage Licensing: This program provides arms room ammunition storage licenses for limited quantities of ammunition within a unit arms room(s).  This process ensures a safe and compliant authorized storage of ammunition on Fort Cavazos. 

The process can be started by contacting the program manager at (254) 287-3459 or completing the license packet and emailing it to the PM License packet .  Make sure to use your authentication certificate when prompted.
