Installation Management Command-Pacific Region


On the third Monday of the New Year, we’ll pause to remember the life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

His legacy is one of service to mankind. King wanted us not to judge others “by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

In keeping with the tone of the holiday, it’s appropriate we apply the principles of risk management into our activities during this weekend by placing the safety of our Soldiers, civilians and family members at the forefront. We need to remind ourselves of the numerous hazards associated with a long holiday weekend.

Leaders at all levels must enforce and supervise established risk control measures; standards should never be ignored and a safety violation should never go uncorrected.

Risk management is a systematic, five-step process, consisting of identifying hazards, assessing risks, developing controls, making risk decisions, and supervising operations/evaluating the risk management controls used. The use of this simple process can make a positive difference in all holiday celebrations.

Our goal is for every member of our community to safely return to continue, in earnest, our important mission of protecting our great nation.

I encourage everyone to take the opportunity, Monday, to reflect on the life and service of Dr. King.

I wish each of you and your families a very safe weekend.
