Nothing celebrates America like the 4th of July, but using fireworks, firecrackers, or other pyrotechnics is prohibited on Eielson AFB. Only the installation commander can approve the use of fireworks on the base. If you want to celebrate the 4th of July at Eielson, you can attend the 4th of July Bash at Birch Lake. The event is July 4 from noon to 5 p.m. and includes free food, lots of beach fun and free watercraft and equipment rentals. The event will be located at Outdoor Recreation at Birch Lake. This free event is open to the Eielson AFB community.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), corded window coverings are one of the top five hidden hazards in American homes, with infants and children dying each year from accidental strangling, is window cords. Since these blinds and curtain cords are a serious risk for our children, Corvias Military Living wants to remind you and your family on the proper steps to staying safe. Be sure to keep all window cords out of the reach of children. This includes ensuring that all furniture and toys are away from windows and if possible, moved to another wall. Examine all shades and blinds in the home. If your home does not have the cordless blind style, make sure there are no accessible cords on the front, side, or back of the product. Do not place cribs, beds, and furniture close to the windows because children can climb on them and gain access to the cords. Make loose cords inaccessible. If the window shade has looped bead chains or nylon cords, install tension devices to keep the cord taut.
Following these tips will help keep you and your family safe from this hidden hazard. More information can be found by visiting the Window Safety Cord Council’s website, windowcoverings.org.
A big part of Corvias Military Living is giving back to the community. Here at Eielson AFB we would like to recognize Brecken and Katelyn for their awesome contribution to the community! They wanted to make sure all of the pets that visit the Bark Park had toys to play with so they put a box with a few toys there to share! We loved the idea so much we named the box after them! Thank you again Brecken and Katelyn for your contribution to the community, all the dogs visiting the Bark Park really appreciate it!
Leash Law – While out walking your pets they need to be on leash at all times! Even if your dog is trained well, we still ask that while they are out of your fenced in yard that they are kept on leash. Other residents or individuals that may be visiting the area could be afraid of pets, and we want EVERYONE to be able to enjoy the neighborhoods! If you have any questions please call the Community Office at 907-372-2300.
Pet Waste – pet waste is to be cleaned up after every occurrence per the Pet Addendum. This includes pet waste in any common area outside of your own fenced in yard. Be sure to bring doggy bags with you when walking your pets, you never know when they will have to go!
Yard Maintenance – in order for your yard to get mowed it’s important to make sure all pet waste is cleaned up before 0800 the morning of your scheduled Lawn Care Day. Pet waste is a hazardous material and lawn care will not be done if any pet waste is seen in the yard.

Nothing says summer like a flame broiled hotdog or hamburger. But before you break out the grill, here are a couple of suggestions to keep your outdoor barbecue safe and satisfying. Propane and charcoal grills should only to be used outdoors and be placed at least 15 feet away from any structure. Never cook under an overhang or store propane gas cylinders in buildings or garages. A grill should never be left unattended and should only be lit by a responsible adult. Follow these simple rules and you’re guaranteed a delicious and fulfilling summer.
Having a pet is fun, but pet ownership also comes with many responsibilities. If you already have a family pet, or are thinking about getting one, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Care for your pet
Caring for your animal is the greatest responsibility of pet ownership. Your pet depends on you for basic needs such food, water and shelter. To keep your animal healthy, vaccinated and gets annual check-ups.
Pets require your time and attention. Whether your pet requires a lot of care or is low maintenance, find time to spend with your pet. Brushing your pet is a great way to spend some time together and can reduce pet hair around the house.
Regularly exercise your pet to keep them happy and healthy. Going for a walk or playing around the house or the Edward’s Bark Park benefits both you and your pet.
Dealing with pet waste is one of those topics that every pet owner must deal with but no one likes to talk about. The fact is that the majority of community and neighborhood pet problems result from the inappropriate handling of pet waste. In addition, pet waste is the greatest source of potential health risk for your pet and your family. Scoop litter boxes daily and clean them regularly. If your pet spends time outside your house, clean up waste from the yard.
For your pet’s wellbeing make sure you always follow the Pet Policy outlined in the Resident Responsibility Guide.
When washing dishes by hand, don’t let the water run. Fill one basin with wash water and the other with rinse water. For more water conservation tips: http://wateruseitwisely.com/100-ways-to-conserve/
