FORT RUCKER, Ala. ─ To help Soldiers and Civilians counter potential hazards during the upcoming chillier months, the U.S. Army Combat Readiness Center has released the 2022 Fall/Winter Safety Campaign. The campaign, scheduled to run through March, will provide tools and products focusing on important, seasonal-appropriate safety topics.

Cooler temperatures pose their own persistent challenges, including driving in adverse weather conditions and increased personal risk when outdoors. Soldiers, Civilians and Family members may use these specific campaign tools to help minimize risk and prevent these unique mishaps. The campaign includes posters, feature articles, videos and public service announcements focusing on timely safety topics such as safe driving in wintery conditions, prevention of cold weather injuries, home safety and more.

“We’re excited to provide this campaign for leaders and safety professionals across the Army as the fall and winter seasons begin,” said Brig. Gen. Gene D. Meredith, USACRC commanding general and director of Army Safety. “It is critical for leaders to relay the importance of trained skills and positive behaviors among their Soldiers. By sharing these seasonal-related articles, real-life safety stories from the field, posters and PSAs, we can hopefully reach Soldiers at all levels, and reinforce how important it is to be aware of the changing seasons and surroundings.”

Command Sgt. Maj. James L. Light, USACRC, encourages users to check the CRC website frequently for safety materials, as they will be released gradually throughout the fall and winter seasons.

“First-line leaders and safety professionals will be the conduit through which most Soldiers receive this information,” he said. “We’re relying on NCOs and unit safety personnel to make their Soldiers aware of these seasonal hazards and how to mitigate risk.”

The campaign is available on the USACRC’s website at, as well as the organization’s social media platforms Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
