A green ribbon with two white stripes and a
white embroidered inscription “Safety Excellence” is authorized to indicate
accident prevention measures and success. Recently, Fort Detrick met the
regulatory requirements for obtaining the award; being named a 2014 safety
winner by the Department of the Army.
“The U.S. Army Garrison has not had a Class A or B incident in more than 20 years, let alone the required 12-month period for eligibility, and has completed the initial and mid-tour Army Readiness Assessment Program within the last 26 months,” said Rusty Fohner, acting chief of the Installation Safety Office.
During the period of this award, Risk Management training was completed by 100% of personnel assigned to the U.S. Army Garrison and is continually monitored to ensure new personnel complete the training in a timely manner.
The U.S. Army Garrison continually strives to improve its safety program and to develop processes that exemplify a commitment to safety excellence.
The streamer may be displayed by the organization for one year, at the expiration of which the unit must re-qualify.
