Unit Risk Inventory.  All Fort Jackson units are required to conduct an annual Unit Risk Inventory (URI), IAW AR 600-85, The Army Substance Abuse Program.  The Risk Reduction Program Coordinator will conduct the URI for battalion size elements, and companies with 20 or more Soldiers.  New Commanders must complete the URI 90 days after assuming command. In order for this to be effective, at least 80% of the unit must be present for the survey.  The commander can use the results of the URI to adjust training and prevention efforts within the unit.  Units requesting the URI must provide a facility that will accommodate the number of personnel being surveyed.  To schedule your URI, contact the Fort Jackson ASAP POC at (803) 751-7294.
