“This mission, it makes me feel part of something, and we’re working #together on a common cause," said U.S. Army Pfc. Anthony Killiebrew, a small arms and artillery repairer with 1729th Maintenance Company.

The #COVID19 response is more than just a mission for many Maryland National Guard members. It's an opportunity to make a difference in our communities.

WATCH! In this video U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Janeen Birckhead and Command Sgt. Maj. James Nugent discuss the importance of safety and resiliency. We cannot be a successful military force without keeping each and every one of our Soldiers healthy, able, and willing to accomplish our critical missions at home and abroad.

Throughout the month of September, the Maryland National Guard is emphasizing the importance of safety, health and welfare, and resiliency with a Safety Stand-Down. The Safety Stand-Down will host events designed to inform Soldiers on safety hazards and protective methods and allow Soldiers to engage in community efforts to promote a safe environment.

Leaders,
I have recently been notified by our Surgeon General of an emerging health threat to our Soldiers with potentially catastrophic health risks associated with the use of products containing Cannabidiol (CBD) oil. We need to educate our formations on these health risks potentially related to vaping products containing CBD oil which could cause severe medical issues. These adverse health effects range from confusion to seizures, and complications may result in brain death. This problem has the potential to spread quickly across our Army, as CBD oil has been found in a wide range of products from foods and dietary supplements to vaping oils. These products are available on-line and in many retail stores, including vape shops and health stores. Product names include Black Magic, Black Diamond and Triple-X. Although CBD oil derived from the cannabis plant is a controlled substance under Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, these products, and all vape oils, are currently unregulated by any U.S. Federal Regulatory Agency. I consider this emerging public health threat a top priority, and we must continue to monitor this issue and provide updates as new information becomes available. As a part of our effort to protect Soldier health and safety, the U.S. Army Public Health Center is producing tailored information products. We need to ensure the widest dissemination of these products as soon as they are finalized. In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding this issue, additional supplement safety information for Leaders, Warfighters, Families and Providers provided by the DOD Human Performance Resource Center can be found at: https://www.opss.org/faqs/cannabidiol-are-dietary-supplements-cannabidiol-legal

Between the hurricane recovery efforts in Texas and the hurricane prep going on in Florida, this is a good time to talk about preparedness here in Maryland. As National Guard Soldiers we have to be prepared to respond when disasters strikes and we are called upon to respond. This starts by preparing ourselves and our families so we have one less thing to worry about when we are gone. Here are a few tips to get yourselves ready.

Basic Preparedness Tips:
1. Know where to go. If you are ordered to evacuate, know the local evacuation route(s) to take and have a plan for where you can stay. Contact your local emergency management agency for more information.
2. Put together a go-bag: disaster supply kit, including a flashlight, batteries, cash, first aid supplies, medications, sturdy shoes, and copies of your critical information if you need to evacuate.
3. If you are not in an area that is advised to evacuate and you decide to stay in your home, plan for adequate supplies in case you lose power and water for several days, and you are not able to leave due to flooding or blocked roads (at least 1 gallon water per person/animal per day for at least 3 days, 3 day supply of non-perishable food, manual can opener, solar cell phone charger, extra propane for generator, etc.).
4. Make a family emergency communication plan.
5. Many communities have text or email alerting systems for emergency notifications. To find out what alerts are available in your area, search the Internet with your town, city, or county name and the word “alerts.”

Preparing Your Home:
1. High winds can cause trees and branches to fall, so trim or remove damaged trees and limbs to keep you and your property safe.
2. Secure loose rain gutters and downspouts and clear any clogged areas or debris to prevent water damage to your property.
3. Reduce property damage by retrofitting to secure and reinforce the roof, windows and doors, including the garage doors.
4. If you have a sump pump, make sure it’s working properly.
5. Purchase a portable generator or install a generator for use during power outages. Remember to keep generators and other alternate power/heat sources outside, at least 20 feet away from windows and doors and protected from moisture; and NEVER try to power the house wiring by plugging a generator into a wall outlet.
