Ready means sustainable planning that can evolve and build with a workforce designed to meet tomorrow's challenges.

By asking three key questions, Fort Detrick is Ready to meet those challenges.

What has the most value?

Ideas have the most value and people have the best ideas. Fort Detrick ensures that people count, their ideas, their issues, and their solutions. People's ideas are what make Ready Fort Detrick a Sustainable Community of Excellence.

Are we doing the right things?

Efficiencies enhance workforce value; we must increase our efficiencies in order to increase our value. While we become more efficient we must retain our focus on Safety First, Last, and all the time.

Safety includes being:

  • An industry leader — Top 1 percent in the nation
  • Fostering comprehensive fitness and Resiliency, giving people a choice and a roadmap to living
  • Reducing the risk of threats from terrorism including foreign, domestic, and insider.

What are we missing?

Empowerment and Engagement provide our employees a leadership voice effecting positive change and improving performance and efficiency at all levels — Efficiency is everyone's business.

Are you and your family ready for an emergency?

Emergencies affect hundreds of thousands of people every year. One may hit your installation and community and affect you and your family. When emergencies occur, military and civilian organizations respond, but it takes time to mobilize, and they focus on the most critical needs first. You should get ready to manage on your own for at least three days.

Failure to prepare can put yourself, your family, and your property in jeopardy!

It's up to you.
Prepare Strong.
