During the Kwaj Town Hall Meeting in November, I stated that I would be brie ng the results of the transition teamÂ’s work to our higher authority. I asked you to wait and not make any career-changing decisions until you get the result of those brie ngs. Dr. Rodney Robertson has approved the recommended course of action at his level. Michael Schexnayder will receive a brie ng in the month of March. My transition team looked at four possible courses of action and came to the conclusion that the best course of action is to implement full range distributed operations and continue with accompanied personnel on Kwajalein. Kwajalein Range Services has been directed to develop a proposed operational and logistical support plan that will ensure the continued and unhindered operation of U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll as it transforms its current business practices and operations through scal year 2013. USAKA has received direction from the Space and Missile Defense Command commanding general that it must realign its business practices and mission execution to accommodate RDO enabled by installation of a ber optic network between Kwajalein and Guam. As a result of that guidance, and with the input of multiple study groups, USAKA received budget guidance in November that indicated a reduction in funding is inevitable for future scal years. The new plan includes funding the Reagan Test Site to a level that provides for the execution of the RDO and provides for continued operation, maintenance, improvement and modernization of the current RTS instrumentation suite per the current contract requirements. It also ensures that, for purposes of recruitment and retention, living on Kwajalein includes an accompanied option for selected positions. Many options are on the table for review, and as IÂ’ve mentioned before, weÂ’re L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editor I was unhappy to see that the direct ight to Honolulu is going to be done away with. My purpose in writing this is so that, perhaps, someone in a postion to affect a change to this plan might do so. On our last home leave it was just wonderful to arrive in Hono earlier in the day after the direct ight. We had plenty of time to get to our hotel, relax and have a nice dinner out after rst limbering up that credit card in a few shops. There was also ample time to get to our connecting ight the following day minus some of the travel frenzy. I realize that for young people it probably does not affect them much but for us with a little more Â“wear and tearÂ” on us,(nice way of saying: age) this can make a big difference in traveling. This is probably a small thing, but sometimes small things add up to a big thing in quality of life. Â— Jo Bolen using the Lean Six Sigma model to affect ef ciencies in current operations. Some of the areas weÂ’re looking at or planning to look at are warehousing (ongoing), intra-atoll transportation (ongoing), retail facility consolidation, housing footprint reduction, Roi operations, community activities operations, and a personnel policy review. As you can see, a lot of work remains, but I promised you an update as things progress in the spring Â‘07 time frame. The current plan is to get changes in order during this scal year. Stand by for period updates in the near future. I wish everyone a very happy new year!
The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2007 3Observing re safety rules can save lives. By Nell DrumhellerEditorWhat would happen if there was a re and no one evacuated? The Kwajalein Fire Department responds to between nine and 10 emergencies each week. Â“Our typical responses are re alarm activations, report of re, emergency medical incidents, and hazmat responses,Â” explained Ken Riley, assistant chief of re prevention. When an alarm activates, people should evacuate, but that doesnÂ’t always happen. Â“If you are at work and the re alarm activates, take your cac [common access card] and personal items that are at your immediate disposal such as purses or backpacks,Â” Riley said. Â“If you are in your BQ [bachelor quarters], the same guidelines apply. If you get to the hall and see there is no smoke, take time to lock your door and exit the building. The corridor walls and doors are re rated. If you get to the hall and it is lled with heavy smoke and you cannot make it to the re exit, close the door and place a wet towel at the crack of the door. Call the re department, and let us know you are trapped.Â”Following procedures can mean life or death Surviving a When an alarm goes off in a facility on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur, an alarm is also received at the fire station. When this happens, the alarm room operator dispatches response crews.Â“Immediately after dispatching the re department, the alarm room operator will notify KPD [Kwajalein Police Department] who will in turn dispatch a unit. EMT [Emergency Medical Treatment] personnel respond in the ambulance on all alarms. The DoD and Army standard for structural responses is three engine companies and an incident commander. On Kwajalein we respond with two engine companies, an ambulance, and an incident commander,Â” Riley said.According to the National Fire Protection Agency, the rst objective of a re alarm signal is to notify occupants of a re. Â“Buildings are designed, size of corridors, distance to and size of exits, etc. with consideration for a prompt evacuation,Â” Riley said. Â“If the occupants wait until they actually see re or smoke, it may already be too late for all occupants to exit.Â” Every building is required by Army regulations to have an Emergency Evacuation Plan. Riley explained that this plan will show evacuation routes and a point to assemble so a head count can be made. The facility manager is responsible for having these posted. Â“If you do not know where your plan is contact the manager of your facility. If you do not have one, at minimum you should be across the street, be careful crossing streets as emergency units will be responding,Â” he added. Onlookers could keep emergency responders from effectively doing their jobs. Riley advised, Â“You should keep the re department between you and the building with the alarm activation.Â” When an alarm activates, residents should assume it means fire. However, Riley said that smoking, cooking, water leaking into the system and condensations caused by occupants opening windows are also reasons why an alarm will sound. KFD typically beats the DoD and Army standards for response time, which is ve minutes. Â“We average between two and three minutes [in response time],Â” Riley said.Facts and guresThe following is provided by the NFPA: Â• In the United States from 1999 to 2002 an estimated annual average of 2,340 reported res in dormitory properties caused three civilian deaths, 80 civilian injuries and $32 million in estimated direct property damage. Â• Fires in the dormitory occupancy group fell 22 percent from 3,200 in 1980 to 2,620 in 2002. In comparison, structure res of all types declined 51 percent from 1980 to 2002. While the long-term trend shows that the problem has been getting better, the number of res reported in 2002 was at its highest point since 1989.
Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Republic of Marshall Islands will make rst Olympic appearance in Beijing in Beijing. (Photos by JJ Klein) bid to participate, he is determined to qualify for the 100-meter backstroke on his own. Â“IÂ’m de nitely going,Â” Heine explained, Â“but within the Olympics, for swimming, there is a meet within a meet. The people who qualify swim rst, for the people who get to just go there is another meet for them. I want to be able to swim with the guys who made the standard.Â” Â“I think Jared has a great shot at qualifying under the B standard, although it will not be easy. Nothing worth achieving is ever that easy,Â” said FSU Assistant Coach Jim Barber. Barber is HeineÂ’s current swim coach. Team captain of the Seminoles Division I swim team in his senior year, Heine was on Kwajalein last week By JJ KleinReporter September graduate of Florida State University with a degree in Information Technology, 22year-old Jared Heine should be out pounding the pavement trying to get a job. Instead he can be found in a pool, not lounging, but training for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, where he will represent the Republic of the Marshall Islands. The RMI was voted in as the 203rd member of the International Olympic Committee last February and will make its rst appearance at the XXIX Olympic Games. This recognition allows the RMI National Olympic Committee to send a handful of Marshallese athletes with previous international experience to take part in the games. The athletes donÂ’t have to qualify to participate. HereÂ’s the kicker; even though Heine has an automatic A Swimmer Jared Heine hopes to do well at country's rst games"I am sure that not too many athletes and rival coaches ever thought that this skinny little kid would ever amount to much. I think the fact that he continues to keep improving motivates him to see just how much more improvement his hard work can achieve." Neil Harper, FSU Swim Team head coach
The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2007 See OLYMPICS, Page 125 Kwajalein Swim Team members, from left, Justin DeCoster, Ian Taylor, Jared Heine, Michael Taylor and Julianne Kirchner discuss Heine's Olympic hopes. to meet his 2007 World Championship teammates at Emon Beach. Before making it to Kwajalein he had a stop in Majuro to press the esh with the President of the Marshall Islands Kessai Note. Born in Guam, raised in Honolulu and living in Tallahassee, Fla., Heine followed his older brother, Jason, to the swimming pool and started competing at the age of six. Even at that age Heine demonstrated a erce competitive nature when he started winning third, second and eventually rst place swim ribbons, recounted his mother Claudine, who is Marshallese. Â“Jared is a smaller-than-average male swimmer with a big heart that is performing at levels no one thought he could ever achieve,Â” said Neil Harper, head coach for the FSU Swim Team, and a 1984 and 1988 Olympian. If the slim, 5Â’9Â” Heine can shave 1.08 seconds off his 100-meter backstroke personal best time of 58.08 at the World Championships in March, then two additional Marshallese athletes will be able to piggyback on HeineÂ’s successful attempt and be allowed to participate in the Beijing games. Incidentally, the Olympic record for this event is 53.45 seconds. In the international swim world, where touching the wall a fraction of a second behind the winner can land you in fth or sixth place, HeineÂ’s attempt is no small feat. Â“I am sure that not too many athletes and rival coaches ever thought that this skinny little kid would ever amount to much,Â” Harper said. Â“I think the fact that he continues to keep improving motivates him to see just how much more improvement his hard work can achieve.Â” Â“Athletically Jared has less room for error to compete at a high level, so he has to train at that level very consistently to achieve his goals,Â” Barber added. Â“Jared stays motivated by the fact that he is representing his country.Â” Acceptance in the IOC brings a few perks for small countries attempting to develop competitive sports programs. For Heine, that perk is a $4,000 Beijing 2008 Olympic Scholarship, paid out quarterlyÂ—not much for a college graduate who could be making a lot more. Heine was the only Marshallese athlete to receive one of 906 scholarships awarded by the IOC to promising athletes. International rankings, and in HeineÂ’s case points scored in international competition, were the criteria used in securing this nancial support intended to assist athletes with accommodation, training and medical costs according to the IOC of cial Web site. The next year and a half will be devoted to training six days a week, twice a day with Barber on the Seminole campus, where Heine is working as an unpaid volunteer coach so that he can use the facility. Â“I trust him completely,Â” Heine said of Barber. Â“Each week he knows how much yardage IÂ’m doing. He knows what he wants me to be doing. He has a plan for me all the way to the Olympics.Â” Â“Our overall goal is to create an environment from which success is inevitable. I have always wanted
Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass Father/Daughter dance held MondayBy Nell DrumhellerEditorThree hundred and sixty four days out of the year these guys would be wearing khaki shorts, ip ops and Aloha shirts, and that would be dressed up. But on Monday night under the twinkling lights at the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room, the dads did it up right. They were in real shoes, long pants, shirts, ties and even a tuxedo. It was the Parent TeacherÂ’s Organization-sponsored Father/Daughter Dance. Young women, from kindergarten through the sixth grade, glided into the room on their best menÂ’s arms. One father, smiling at his lovely daughter said, Â“This is the eleventh year IÂ’ve done this.Â” Another dad, with three beautiful daughters looked like he felt lucky just to be able to keep up. The room was decorated in purple, gold and a Mardi Gras theme and had become an elaborate fantasy room where young girls with skinned knees who would normally be buzzing around the island on their bikes were now princesses. Many had tiaras to prove it. One mom snuck in the back for a moment to get a glimpse of her husband in a suit and her daughter in her rst Â‘dress-upÂ’ ensemble. Â“One of NatalieÂ’s friends came by a couple of days ago and asked what she was going to wear,Â” the mom explained. Â“Natalie showed her the dress she had picked out.Â” Apparently NatalieÂ’s choice was not up to standards, because on the dance day morning her young friend showed up on her doorstep with a shimmering frock in blue. Â“You should wear this, itÂ’s better,Â” the friend said. And indeed, Natalie, 6, looked grand. Neil Dye provided the music, taking requests from clamoring girls all eager to dance with their dads. Or ditch them. One father, anticipating a turn with his daughter stood waiting on the dance oor where his dark-haired daughter laughed and rejected him, preferring to dance with a friend. Ah, so is the way of the world.The high school multi-purpose room was lled with the sound of music and fathers and daughters dancing the night away Monday evening. (Photos by Nell Drumheller)Mike Cheatham and daughter Claire cut a rug at the Father/Daughter dance.
