October 2018 Update

Good day everyone! My name is Maj. David Brown and I am the Safety Officer for Missouri Wing Headquarters. I wanted to start this directorate because I want to give you more than one way to find safety information and also to keep you updated on changes that are being developed within the safety program.

Most of you have already heard about the new revision of safety regulations and may be wondering where these changes are going to take us. So am I! National Headquarters has worked tirelessly on remodeling the safety program, so I can only expect these changes to continue to lead us in right direction. We want senior members and cadets to experience all types of activities and programs, but we can only do this by following safety regulations and continue to utilize risk management before every activity.

“The ultimate goal of the CAP Safety Program is for each and every member of the Civil Air Patrol as well as the organization itself, to embrace and practice Risk Management as a Core Competency of Civil Air Patrol”. – Mr. George Vogt, CAP/SE

Updates/Information

  • First, I would like to thank Harry S. Truman squadron, especially 1 st Lt. Sam Samarasinghe, for hosting a safety outreach day on October 4 th , 2018 with the University of Central Missouri. Over 25 students specializing in occupational safety or similar programs were in attendance. Good job!
  • There is NO safety survey required this year!
  • On 10/3/18 at 1318 CT the National Wireless Emergency Alert System came online. As of right now there is no way of turning it off unless you have your phone shut down or in airplane mode.
  • The annual safety day is now called “Annual Safety Risk Management” day and is still required for all units to complete in the months of January, February, or March.
  • The new Safety Program Management System (CAPR 160-1) will be effective January 2019 and Reporting and Review (CAPR 160-2) will be effective March 2019.
  • National Safety Officer College is going to begin a blended learning approach starting in 2019. The classroom portion online will take 2-3 months to complete with a 2-day traditional classroom arrangement.
  • Be as detailed as possible in SIRS when making a report. Every few days go back and check for journal entries, etc. as I may be adding or needing additional information. Once you file the report and it is sent up the chain-of-command you are not done! The report still has to go through wing, region, national and CLOSED before you are finished. Please talk with your safety officer if you have any questions regarding SIRS or safety in general.
  • As of October 10 th , 2018 Missouri wing has 13 technician, 6 senior, and 1 master rated in safety who are serving as safety officers or assistants. We have to change this. If you are interested in the safety program speak with your safety officer, commander, and/or professional development officer so we get you trained. It is very difficult to run a safety program in a wing when there are only 20 senior members participating as safety officers that are qualified in the safety track. If you are working on your technician, keep going! You’re doing a great job!
  • Once the Missouri wing supplement to the safety program is approved by NHQ I will post it here and email it to commanders and safety officers. Of course, you have multiple ways to locate it if needed.

That is all for now and thank you for taking your time to read through the bullet points. Keep checking in for updates.
