FORT LEE, Va. (May 15, 2013) -- To emphasize the importance of safety, Command Sgt. Maj. James K. Sims, command sergeant major for the Combined Arms Support Command, recently took the opportunity to see first-hand the Fort Lee Fire and Emergency Services Department's facilities and training.

"Our service members, families and civilians are our most important resource," Sims said. "Ensuring their safety and health is a top priority."

After touring the facility and talking with members of the F&EMS team about their critical mission, Sims got a chance to participate in some of the rigorous training personnel experience. The CASCOM senior noncommissioned officer also assisted F&EMS personnel perform preventative maintenance checks and services on the ladder-mounted water cannon.

"We are very fortunate to have this dedicated team of professionals working on behalf of our team," Sims said. "What a pleasure it was to spend some time with Fort Lee's finest. The professionalism and personal sacrifices of these individuals is part of what makes this community so great.

""When it comes to safety, these are the 'Game-Changers' I want on my side," he said.
