FORT SHAFTER — This month, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, I ask you to be vigilant in looking after the safety of yourself, your friends and family.



Keep your mind on the safety basics: Wear a seat belt, don’t drink and drive, and don’t speed. Plan for a designated driver before you’ve had your first drink. Make sure you are driving safely and keep a watchful eye out for the travelers around you.

The biggest hazards out there are other drivers, especially those who try to multitask by texting or using cell phones.

Although a time of joy and goodwill, this season brings particular hazards that can be unforgiving to the unprepared. Now is a good time to remember how to reduce the risks on these holidays.

During the Thanksgiving weekend, regardless of your plans, please be aware of the hazards; take action to guard against them and execute good safety practices.

You are too important to your own families to fall victim to a preventable accident.
I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.
