Fire Prevention Week Lights Up GTMO
By Mass Communication Specialist
3rd Class Leona Mynes, Naval Station
Guantanamo Bay Public Affairs
Guantanamo Bay residents witnessed
a portion of fire fighting training Oct. 7
between the MWR Library and Sherman
A Mobile Aircraft Firefighting
Training Device (MAFTD) was set
ablaze for firefighter recruits to
extinguish. The event coincided with
National Fire Prevention Week, held
in Guantanamo Bay Oct. 4-10.
"We're required to provide sched-
uled aircraft firefighting training and
we combined it with Fire Prevention
Week to involve the public and show
them why this type of training is im-
portant," said Fire Chief Eric Tucker.
The Fire Prevention Week pro-
claimation, released Oct. 2 by the
office of the President of the United
States, states that "as powerful
as any force in the natural world,
fire deserves our utmost attention.
Unchecked, fire can destroy homes,
devastate our environment, and, at its
worst, injure or fatally harm individ-
uals. Fire Prevention Week is a time
to learn about important fire safety
issues and empower our communi-
ties to stay 'Fire Smart.'"
Tucker said his firefighters fight
several different types of fires, some-
times caused by nature, but most
were caused by people.
"The majority of the fires we see
are kitchen fires," said Tucker.
According to the National Fire
Prevention Association, cooking is the
leading cause of home fires. It accounts
for 40 percent of reported home fires
and 36 percent of related injuries.

vention, call 4598 or visit NFPA.org.
Energy Policy that
By Sue Brink, Naval Facilities
Engineering Command Southeast
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS)-
-Commander, Navy Region
Southeast (CNRSE) signed the
new energy instruction that
establishes the energy policy
for installations during his first
Energy Council meeting Aug.
Rear Adm. Townsend G.
Alexander, CNRSE, set forth
a comprehensive and robust
energy strategy to meet all new
laws and policies set forth for
energy and water conservation
with the issuance of this new
"Leadership in conservation
will be achieved and sustained
with awareness, training and
implementation of suitable
technologies in energy and wa-
ter conservation," said Alexan-
der. "As a culture, our behavior
will have to change."
Legislation passed in the
Energy Independence and Se-
curity Act of 2007 (EISA 2007)
requires a 30 percent reduction
in energy intensity by 2015, a
20 percent reduction in water
intensity by 2015, and an audit
each year of one quarter of the
facilities identified as the top 75
percent of energy consuming
The National Defense Au-
thorization Act of 2007 (NDAA
2007) states that 25 percent
of electric consumption must
come from renewable sources.

Tracy Lawrence Performs for GTMO Residents

Servicemembers stationed in
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba attend-
ed a weekend event that ended
with a concert featuring country
singer Tracy Lawrence Oct. 4.
The Navy Exchange/Morale,
Welfare and Recreation's 8th
Annual Customer Appreciation
Weekend was a two-day celebra-
tion designed to recognize the
sacrifices and contributions that
service members provide at over-
"I have never served in our
armed forces, but I'm a huge
supporter of our country and our
troops," Lawrence said. "I re-
ally appreciate the sacrifices they
Lawrence said he knows it can
be difficult for service members to
be away from their families.
"I know how tough it is on me
to be away from my kids for a
few weeks at a time," he said. "I
can't imagine what it is like being
away from my kids for one or two
years at a time. It's pretty tough,
GTMO 5th-grader Marcus Fulk of Washington, Ind. talks with country
singer Tracy Lawrence at a special autograph-signing session before the
his performance, Oct. 4. Lawrence said he felt empathy for servicemembers
who sacrificed time with their family for the military because he also
spends time away from his family for his career.
especially with the danger at-
tached to it."
Lawrence was one of many art-
ists in the music industry to have
performed at overseas military
installations in 2009.
"I'm proud to be in an industry
where a lot of artists take pride in
doing things for the military and
I think it's great for the morale,"
Lawrence said it is important to
bring a little piece of home to the
troops regardless of where they
"I think everybody tends to be
a little homesick," he said. "Just
hearing a familiar voice you've
heard on the radio or being able to
hear some music that you grew up
with can boost morale."
Hundreds of GTMO residents
flooded the venue to enjoy the
singer's performance regardless of
a sore throat.
"Tracy Lawrence and his band
gave an outstanding concert for
GTMO," said Navy Ens. Karl J.
Rosenkranz, Naval Station GTMO
Administrative Officer. "He was
able to make the large audience
feel like a small family."
Rosenkranz said concert-goers
could feel the compassion and
admiration Lawrence felt toward
servicemembers as he performed.
"He and his band truly do care
and support the troops ... evident
in the fact that he came out to
deliver and encore performance, to
the delight and cheers of the entire
crowd. I certainly look forward to
seeing if return again to GTMO."

certs or performances in GTMO,

and major renovations on existing
The strategy precepts vital to this
effort are to raise personnel aware-
ness and participation, train energy

new conservation based technology,
implement life cycle cost effective

Personnel will be trained and
certified annually on strategies, con-
struction and sustainment of energy

construction and major renovation
plans will be reviewed to ensure that
leading technology for conservation
are implemented. To further publi-
cize these efforts, existing buildings
re-commissioned as 'Energy Star' or
'LEED' certified will be recognized
with a 'ribbon cutting' ceremony.
NAVFAC will be monitoring
progress closely with a comprehen-
