Safety is crucial to the Army's readiness. The Army is joining the National Safety Council this year in recognizing National Safety Month. Taking precautions to maintain safety is essential both inside and outside the workplace. This year's Safety Month observance is especially timely because our Nation and our workforce will soon transition from operating under restrictive COVID-19 guidelines and return to more traditional operations. As COVID-19 has shown, we should always be prepared for the unexpected.

The Installation Safety Office is also committed to protecting the Army community and increasing awareness of leading safety and health risks at work, home, or anyplace. In support of National Safety Month, ISO will focus on a single topic each week and will provide a themed poster each week.

The following are the topics that will be addressed:

Week 1: Risk Management: Emergency Preparedness; June 1 - 5
-Where do you stand in terms of COVID-19?

Week 2: Office/Home Safety; June 8-12
-Assess your work area by completing self-assessment checklist
-What are the top two hazards at home and work?

Week 3: Ergonomics; June 15-19
-Garrison SOHAC

Week 4: Driving; June 22 - 26
- How do you define yourself (disciplined, undisciplined, or indiscipline) when you operate a motor vehicle?

Growing and Keeping an Emergency Fund For Every Military and Civilian Personnel

Rainy days will come for everyone, whether it is a family emergency, COVID-19, a leaky roof, or vehicle repair. Establishing and maintaining an emergency savings account is the most important difference between those who manage to stay afloat and those who find themselves swimming in debt.

The 2018 Federal Reserve’s Report on Economic Well-being of U.S. Households, released on May 14, 2020, stated that 40% of adults say they could not cover an emergency expense costing $400 without borrowing money or selling something.

Emergency funds should be placed into an account that you can access easily, but not so easy that you regularly “dip” into it for everyday expenses. Keep it separate from your regular checking and savings account. Ideally you should have enough in an emergency fund that covers several months to one year of living expenses.

An emergency fund should not be used for any monthly payments you have, or to splurge on a vacation. It should only be accessed only when you absolutely need it.

Some tips to grow your Emergency Fund

1. Stash away extra income: Save any extra funds that come your way, whether it is a bonus, tax refund, sales commission, birthday check and collecting loose change (the money jar).

2. Cut your bills and expenses:
Suggestions:
a. Utilize a car pool (e.g. MichiVan) to commute to work instead of driving. You will save on gas, vehicle maintenance and tires.
b. Cook more at home and take a lunch bag to work.
c. Try shopping around for lower rates on auto, homeowners insurance, phone plans, cable and credit cards
d. Use a shopping list when shopping to reduce impulse buying

3. Consider this 52 week challenge: In one week save $1, two weeks save $2, three weeks save $3, four weeks save $4. Be consistent each week until you get to 52 weeks, you will have saved $1,378.

During COVID-19, Army Emergency Relief (AER) is here to help.

Army Emergency Relief is an Army nonprofit organization that assists Soldiers, families, retirees and survivors with emergency assistance such as emergency travel, health care expenses, and scholarships as well as many other forms of assistance. So while the campaign is ongoing to take donations (www.armyemergencyrelief.org/donate) , it is also available to provide assistance (ArmyEmergencyRelief.org/covid19).

Having said all that, there is concern that there are Soldiers / Families that are hurting and need financial assistance but are unaware of our programs. Some areas AER can help with are: vehicle repair and maintenance, initial rent/deposit, basic living expenses, travel, spouse loss of pay, DoD travel ban, PCS stop movement and quarantine.

For more information call your local AER Section at the Detroit Arsenal at (586) 282-0480, OR email [email protected]. Additional information can also be found at AER web portal: ArmyEmergencyRelief.org/covid19

It's #GivingTuesdayNow, a special event raising funds for those affected by COVID-19.

Your $5 donation will make a direct impact on Soldiers serving on the front line of COVID-19 response

https://give.armyemergencyrelief.org/

Army Emergency Relief was founded in 1942 by Secretary of War Henry Stimson and Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Marshall. Charged with relieving undue financial stress on the force, AER serves the enduring priorities of the Secretary and Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army.

Since 1942, AER has provided $2 billion to nearly 4 million Soldiers, including $1 billion since 9/11. Through zero-interest loans, grants, and educational scholarships, AER ensures no Soldier faces financial hardship on their own.

Army Emergency Relief (AER) provides interest free loans, grants, and scholarships to Soldiers, Retirees, and Families since 1942

Good News! The Selfridge Golf Course is set to open today, Friday, May 1st.

Please note that we will follow the Governor's Stay at home/Stay Safe Executive Order as closely as possible.

Additionally, all should note that the building is closed to customers and there can be no contact between staff and customers at this time (per the EO)

Plan ahead as the Selfridge Golf Pro Shop is closed - no retail sales.

Club repair and re-gripping will be scheduled by appointment only - you must call to arrange drop off and pick up in advance (no golf bags - clubs only)

All tee times must be made in advance via phone and payments by debit or credit card remotely as well. 586 239 4653

Rental carts are unavailable - disabled customers must make advance arrangements. You must have a state issued handicapped placard or license plate and only the disabled individual may access a cart

The Range and practice green are open with limited spaces (Two on the green/ every other space on the range)

Leagues plan on starting shortly but are subject to the "no large gathering" sections of that Executive order and adjustments will have to be made to accommodate the social distancing guidelines.

Snacks or beverages are unavailable. We encourage customers to bring their own non-alcoholic beverages until services resume. Mulligan's Restaurant is closed (with a potential opening date around May 15th).

Port-a-Potty's are expected to be onsite May 2 in the afternoon (if not already). Staff will not be cleaning them as they have sanitizer products for users convenience and are changed out weekly.

For DBIDS card holders: Beginning May 8, the 127th will extend all expired DBIDS cards that have been vetted until normal operations resume. All DBIDS card holders that need an extension must contact the golf course (586-239-4653) to pay the annual administration fee and be submitted for vetting prior to entering the installation. A driver's license will also be required for access.

NO new DBIDS cards will be issued until further notice.

List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2 | US EPA

DISINFECTANTS AND COVID 19

What is the safe way to use disinfectants? The key is to follow the label directions and NEVER mix two cleaning products.

"Label is the Law” and following the label is essential to the safe and effective use of disinfectants. Only use a new sprayer to apply disinfectants. Do not reuse a sprayer that has contained other products. Label the sprayer "Disinfectant Use Only".

Disinfectants, such as Lysol ™, Clorox™, etc. are on the EPA list of products for COVID 19. (NOTE: Inclusion on this list does not constitute an endorsement by EPA or DOD.) Additional disinfectants may meet the criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2.

EPA will update this list with additional products as needed.

The United States Army has long recognized April as Child Abuse Prevention Month, with the Family Advocacy Program taking the lead to increase awareness about the importance of preventing child abuse and neglect.

Earlier this week, FAP Manager Pandora Brown, visited the Detroit Arsenal’s Child Development Center to get a closer look at the pinwheel garden the children planted to help raise awareness of child abuse. The children enjoyed a little fun in the dirt to plant nearly 100 pinwheels throughout the month of April.

As we recognize Child Abuse Prevention Month, even as it comes to a close, as Americans let’s remember to “invest in the lives of our Nation’s children, to be aware of their safety and well-being, and to support efforts that promote their psychological, physical, and emotional development.” ~ Proclamation on National Child Abuse Prevention Month 2020, President Donald J. Trump.
