As we kick off the new school year, our family neighborhoods will fill with more Airmen, family members and pets taking advantage of the back-to-school festivities. Corvias Military Living is asking our residents to please pay attention to posted speed limits and traffic rules as they drive through family housing.
The speed limit through our residential neighborhoods on the base is 15 mph. At this speed, the average driver takes 33 feet to react to an incident and 11 feet to break for a total of 44 feet, or almost three car lengths. When driving at 30 mph the average driver takes 109 feet to stop or seven car lengths! This distance could mean the difference between a near miss and a disaster. The speed limit and traffic rules in base housing are designed to give the average driver the time and space needed to stop and avoid a tragedy.
Disregarding traffic rules in base housing can cost you money, your driving privileges, civilian prosecution and even punitive actions under the UCMJ. Depending on the speed and the number of violations, a speeder can lose their driving privileges on Eielson from three days to one year. No one wants to lose their driving privileges or hurt someone else. Help us keep your neighborhoods safe for drivers and pedestrians alike.
Thank you for your continuing service to our great nation. If you have any questions please call the Community Office at (907)-372-2300.
On September 18, the United States Air Force will turn 67 years old! The Air Force was officially created in 1947, but the Air Force’s legacy goes back to the military’s first purchase of aircraft in the early 20th century! Since its purchase of the Wright Flyer in 1909, the Air Force has continually accomplished its mission of air and space superiority across the world. Way to go and Happy Birthday Airmen!
Service Members and their families are strong and face many adventures throughout their military career. Military life can also be stressful at times and some may start to feel isolated, overwhelmed, or angry when dealing with challenging situations. These reactions can be common responses to life events. However, these feelings may be signs of more serious conditions. People coping with challenges may feel like there is no escape from their symptoms, leading them to have thoughts of suicide. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) – press ‘1’ for the Military Crisis Line or send a text to 838255. You can also visit www.militarycrisisline.net.
If you or someone you know is talking about suicide get them assistance immediately with these three steps – Ask, Care, Escort. Ask your loved one if they are thinking of killing themselves. Care for your loved one – actively listen to show understanding, remove any means that could be used for self-injury. Escort your loved one – never leave them alone! Escort them to their chain of command, a chaplain, a behavioral health professional, or primary care provider.
Keep your refrigerator and freezer at the right temperature. The refrigerator should be between 38° F and 42° F and the freezer between 0° F and 5° F.
Starting September 1st, Eielson AFB Residents can start putting up their holiday decorations. With the cold weather coming we want to make sure you can hang your lights before the snow falls! Please remember no decorations of any kind can be placed on the roof of the homes and lights should only be used 30 days before the holiday and 15 days after. For more information regarding holiday lights, please refer here to our Resident Responsibility Guide.
Some types of trash shouldn’t be placed in your trash can. Large items like old furniture or other bulk items won’t fit. Corvias will pick up your bulk trash. If you have any bulk trash items, you can place it at the curb on your scheduled trash collection day. We will pick up all trash items, except hazardous waste.
Hazardous waste like motor oil, household chemicals or old appliances should never go into your trash. Hazardous waste should be disposed of at the Auto Hobby Shop, and the HazWaste facility at Building 4388. Old fluorescent light bulbs can be turned over to Corvias maintenance technicians for disposal during regular business hours at Building 2571 on Artic Avenue. Keeping hazardous waste out of the local landfill will help us and the environment stay healthier.
