Annual Army Safe Spring/Summer Campaign

Monday, February 29, 2016

What is it?

The annual Army Safe Spring/Summer Campaign promotes individual responsibility and engagement on all fronts among leaders, Soldiers, Family members and civilians to help prevent fatalities and injuries during the spring and summer seasons.

What has the Army done?

The U.S. Army Combat Readiness Center launches the annual Army Safe Spring/Summer Campaign each March to raise awareness of the increased hazards associated with spring and summer activities. The campaign, which runs through September, emphasizes prevention and vigilance and is driven by a theme asking all audiences to make safe decisions wherever their adventures take them. Multimedia products including feature articles, posters and videos covering topics like boating and watercraft safety, heat injury prevention, Private Motor Vehicle safety and many more are available through the campaign website.

What continued efforts are planned for the future?

Historically, spring and summer are the deadliest times of year for Army accidents. While rising temperatures and seasonal activities present persistent challenges for the Army team, proactive risk management will help mitigate the hazards and prevent needless loss.

Why is it important to the Army?

The USACRC produces two campaigns per year, Army Safe Spring/Summer and Army Safe Autumn/Winter, to heighten awareness of the unique seasonal risks associated with on- and off-duty activities.
