Temperatures are rising and cadets and senior members alike will be challenged as we participate in CAP and personal activities. Privately owned vehicle (POV) operations, recreational water activities and seasonal conditions account for the majority of summer accidents and injuries.
Swimming related mishaps increase during the summer months; both in private pools, lakes and in the Gulf of Mexico. This was brought to light recently when several individuals encountered a riptide while swimming on one of the Barrier Islands. I encourage all CAP members and families to swim only in designated swimming areas with life guards present, and/or with appropriate supervision and utilizing personal floatation devices (PFD).
With numerous summer activities ramping up, I ask all leaders to provide heat injury prevention training focusing on the need to maintain hydration and the impacts of energy drinks, supplements and caffeinated drinks. In an effort to prevent heat injuries, leaders should ensure that all members are briefed on the MSWG Heat Injury Prevention Policy, which can be located on our wing website.
Commanders at all levels must emphasize these and all the risks as the seasonal conditions change. It is imperative that we employ smart and effective Risk Management techniques to identify hazards, and work to mitigate or reduce the associated risks to acceptable levels. Please monitor each other, and remember, you could be the link in a chain that could prevent a mishap – just by saying “knock it off”.
