FORT BRAGG, N.C. (Aug. 31, 2011) -- Earlier this month U.S. Army Forces Command leadership directed all FORSCOM commands to conduct a safety and suicide prevention stand down before the Labor Day holiday weekend.

Over the course of two days, Aug 30 - 31, all FORSCOM headquarters personnel complied with that directive and completed training on personally owned vehicle and in particular motorcycle safety, suicide prevention and, for good measure, how to use the Automated External Defibrillators found throughout the FORSCOM/U.S. Army Reserve Command headquarters building and frequently in public venues.

In addition to the classes, a series of videos and presentations for individual viewing have been offered. Also, safety awareness messages are being broadcast on the monitors all around Marshall Hall, the FORSCOM/USARC headquarters building. A seat belt convincer was located in the ceremonial plaza behind the building as well.
