Red Devils Rock!
2002-2003 has been a banner year. Here's a little taste of why Red Devils ROCK!!:
**We completed 26 projects for a total of $36.4M for the Wing (we have 49 in-progress!)
**We completed (so far) 12,218 job orders and 954 work orders spending over $3.3M
**We became AF's #1 priority for dorms (we were previously #14) getting 17 new dorms!
**We responded to 297 fire emergencies from IFE's & medical to alarm activations
**We put in almost 5-month's worth of manpower into fixing spalls on the runway (normally on weekends and in the wee-hours)
**We made major improvements in hazardous material management while eliminating/correcting 70% of the ESOHCAMP finding
**We were the 1st in the AF to fully implement the AF's new Counter-Chemical CONOP
**We developed & even translated the 1st ATSO Guide in the AF to employ the new C-CW CONOP
**Trained 2,700 US and 350 ROKAF
**Fought for and got PACAF to count our wartime strength, not peacetime population to determine how much personnel sheltering we need (the Wolf Pack is now getting a new $550K shelter)
**We moved over 800 people in a single day!
**Met COMPACAF'S unit integrity goal of 95% and then beat it (we're at 97%)!
**Went from #7 to #3 in all of PACAF! (out of 9)
**We responded to 58 hung-ordnance, suspicous packages and tasked to support 2 DV visits in the PACOM AOR
**We also responded to 57 major utility outages from water to electricity (most happened on either Friday or during holiday weekends)
**We blew the ORI away!!
**We run the best hootch on Peninsula!
**We have the highest number of people that want to join us, but were not blessed withour AFSC
**We are the most professional because despite having the MOST dangerous jobs on base (from electricity & power saws to bomb and fires) we had 1 safety incident all year---and it was minor
**And most importantly, we continue to be the ONLY Squadron that wear red t-shirts w/ BDUs, has red jackets for PT, and has a SurfBoard that is the envy of ALL!!!
God Bless each of you & Best wishes to all as you go and live the Legend!
