It’s great having people who live nearby who help you out, feed your cat when you’re out of town or when they see you encumbered by large packages race out their doors to help you get your stuff inside. It perks up your day when a friendly face pops up with a smile and a warm hello, asking you how you’re day is going. There are American communities back in the states that aren’t known for their friendliness; imagine what it would be like if the people on Kwajalein weren’t friendly? If they passed by without making eye contact but just grunted and trudged on? In this very close community where we are almost living on top of one another, being a good neighbor can mean the emotional difference between having a happy day and well, feeling claustrophobic and overwhelmed. While the smiles are nice, many members of this community notch up the whole good neighbor thing – they spend their time and efforts helping people off of the Army installation, too. Think about the generosity of the Christmas Drops for one. Wow. The good neighbor concept crossed the lagoon last week when a Republic of the Marshall Island’s satellite lost power leaving Kwajalein without incoming long distance phone service but more critically, left Ebeye without telephone service. Sure it was a pain in the neck for our telephone dependent society, but we still had other forms of communication with the outside world, we couldn’t call long distance, just receive calls. The community of Ebeye faced a bigger problem. And like a good neighbor, members of this community stepped up to the plate (enough clichs?) and offered their time and expertise. Alan Taylor and Noda Lojkar of the Host Nations Of ce along with Robert Reynolds, Angie James, Jim Hart, Aluis Ysawa and Scott Dixon pitched in to help get communications owing again. One of these guys, Reynolds, is literally my neighbor. He lives across the hall from me in the bachelor quarters. I saw him from time to time during that week. He’d trudge home each day, dirty, sweaty, and resolved to get the phone system back up. Communications has been restored and things are back to normal. The hard work of a handful of neighbors made all of the difference. Thanks. Thank you for being my neighbor.Marshallese Word of the Day


Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglasspartnering has proved to improve productivity as well as safety.” He added that San Juan has completed many projects on schedule and within budget on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur, and I have every con dence they will do it again with the Vehicle Paint and Prep Shop and that they will experience good faith and fair dealings from the Corps of Engineers and members of my staff. According to Louis Askew, resident engineer USACE, the more than 4,300 square foot shop will include a hydro blast room, abrasive blast booth, metallization booth, paint spray booth, undercoating room, administrative space for the operating staff, and supporting facilities including utilities, re protection and alarm systems, paving, storm drainage, information systems and site improvements. Project includes air conditioning, dehumidi cation (25 tons), and mechanical ventilation. By Nell M. Drumheller EditorThe of cial ground-breaking ceremony for a Vehicle Paint and Prep Shop was held Jan. 19. The $10 million contract was awarded Sept. 30 to San Juan Construction, Inc. The excavation for the foundation and utilities will begin Friday and the project completion is anticipated as October 2006. The project is a partnering between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll and San Juan. Les Jones, USAKA deputy commander, said of the partnering, “I will say that I have every reason to think this partnering workshop for the new Vehicle Paint and Prep Shop is a proactive approach to make this project a successful one.

Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass (Photos by Mig Owens) (Illustrations by Dan Adler) By Mig Owens Assistant EditorPuddles formed in the dirt valleys of the new remote control car track Sunday, but were quickly swept away with brooms. After more than 100 long hours over the past month gathering materials from the land ll and building the track, not even a rain delay could dampen the spirits of participants of this inaugural event. The Kwajalein Remote Control Modeling Club’s Kwajalein International Super Speedway or ‘KISS 2’ race got off to a late start because of the weather, but fans were rewarded for their patience with the roaring, smoking action of 14 cars and trucks. Said Matt Hat eld, club president, “Water is good because it wets the soil and keeps down the dust for better traction.” The track, which is located between the re department and the Veteran’s Hall on Lagoon Road, features ve jumps, loose rocks, ne soil 4

The day’s heats included buggy and monster vehicles and each were required to circle the track 10 times. “We’ll experiment with pit stops in the next race,” Hat eld said. Walking away with bragging rights and a plaque for the monster race were Matt Hat eld in rst, Ozzy Velez in second and Robert Greer in third. Buggie results were Casey Martin in rst, Bill Jackson in second and John Antill in third. John Pal won a special made award for the most time spent working on his car as his buggy kept cutting out during the race, and Brandon Owens won a roll cage for best wreck of the day. Hat eld said the cost of the hobby can vary from $300 for the basics and upwards of $600 for those who catch the “RC bug.” The KRCMC welcomes new members and requirements for running at the club’s facility include installation of a fail safe unit on nitro vehicles and signing of the club’s operating policy. The next club meeting will be held in March. For more information, contact Matt Hat eld at 53681 or e-mail Photos from Sunday’s race will be posted on Opposite page, (top) Casey Martin (left) and Bill Jackson (right) prepare their vehicles.

Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Ounce of prevention Some simple steps can prevent a tragedyBy Charles A. Coffman Assistant Chief of Fire PreventionSomebody once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Our main goal in the Fire Prevention Of ce is to ensure, as best we can, that res do not start in the rst place. We have many codes, regulations and standards that govern life safety when it comes to Fire Prevention. A special area of concern to the Fire Prevention Of ce is unaccompanied bachelor quarters. Many of us live and sleep in these multi-story dormitories. If a re breaks out in one room, it can affect all of the occupants in the entire building. Strict regulations and codes are in place for the protection and welfare of all occupants living in our dormitories when it comes to re safety. U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Housing Management Regulation 210-50, section 13 Fire Prevention and Protection deals with special re prevention measures for the bachelor quarters. First, we must understand that our BQ rooms were designed as sleeping and living areas similar to that of regular hotel rooms or university dormitory rooms. None of our BQ rooms have kitchens, therefore certain types of cooking and associated cooking appliances are prohibited. Many of the prohibited appliances produce “grease-laden vapors” that get into the common air conditioning and bathroom duct and exhaust systems. Over time, these grease-laden vapors build up in these ducts and produce serious re hazards as these ducts are not designed to trap grease-laden vapors in the rst place. Additionally, the hot grease given off by these appliances, which is produced under intense heat, greatly contributes to the possibility of accidental res starting in a dormitory setting. The consequence of incidents involving unattended cooking is magni ed in a dormitory environment due to the number of occupants. The National Fire Protection Association also cites the high possibility of most people being asleep in a dormitory when a re occurs. This signi cantly jeopardizes the safety of our dorm residents. Furthermore, our dormitory con guration requires escaping through an interior corridor, which exposes our dorm residents to heat and smoke from a room re. By using only approved cooking appliances listed in the regulation, the chances of re are minimized and the safety of all residents is better safeguarded. In those situations where BQ residents wish to cook beyond that allowed in the BQs, the Adult Recreation Center is available for their use at no cost. Another problem commonly found is that some BQ rooms turn into storage areas. The excessive storage of combustible materials, such as papers, magazines, boxes, trash and other items very much increases the re load of the facility. This, in turn, affects all the BQ occupants. If occupants were to become trapped during an emergency, these materials will hinder firefighting and rescue. Keeping excessive storage down will allow for quick and easy egress from individual rooms for the occupant as well as unobstructed access for responding fire personnel during an emergency. Remove trash, newspapers and recycling materials on a consistent basis. Using good housekeeping practices will limit your combustible storage and will help you maintain your BQ room in a re-safe condition. The storage of hazardous materials and highly ammable substances such as nitro fuel for remote control cars, propane tanks and cylinders for outdoor gas grills and large quantities of other hazardous materials is not allowed and could have deadly consequences if involved in a re. Hazards include explosions from these cylinders, intense heat and toxic gasses that can easily propagate throughout the entire facility. However, household-use items such as cleaning supplies and a couple cans of touch-up paint and lubricants are acceptable. Remember, your BQ room is not a substitute for a garage work bench or ammable storage locker. Please nd alternate means to store these types of items for the safety of all BQ residents and our re ghters. Devices that overload electrical receptacles are also a common hazard. Examples include more than three appliances per outlet, or multiple plug adapters or power strips with more than two cords attached. Multi-outlet surge protectors may not be plugged into an existing power strip (piggybacking), nor shall more than one fused multi-outlet power strip be plugged into a build-See Fire, Page 12
