Critical Days of Summer

"Safety- It's Personal" is the theme for this year's Critical Days of Summer safety campaign, which runs from 25 May through 3 Sep 2012. This year's theme is a reminder that safety is everyone's responsibility and the decisions we make impact our friends, families and Air Force community.

Summer is a wonderful season to enjoy the great outdoors and warm weather with your friends and family. I urge you to incorporate thoughtful planning in all your activities and get sufficient rest before strenuous events as well as extended road trips. Give some consideration to your personal limits and capabilities and exercise sound judgment. We want every Airman to come home safely at the end of the day.

Every year, we remind you about personal risk management during the Critical Days of Summer ... and for good reason. The majority of Air Force fatalities happen during the summer months and we want this to stop. Even one loss is too many! I encourage you to make safety a priority. Our ever-continuing goal is zero preventable mishaps and fatalities- the Quest for Zero.

Please take an active role in keeping your fellow Airmen safe. Reckless behavior off-duty remains our greatest threat. Be a great wingman, an engaged supervisor and the one who sets the example for safety both on and off duty!

I thank you again for your selfless service to our great nation and have a safe summer.

Maj. Gen.Gregory A. Feest
Air Force Chief of Safety
