Overview

The United States Military plays a vital role in the defense of freedom around the world. To accomplish this, our forces must maintain a high level of readiness through intense training. This level of readiness, however, comes with a price tag; hard work, long hours and a commitment to "Safety". This level of readiness is possible in part because when safety is integrated into the mission, it becomes a combat multiplier. Because, readiness demands realistic, effective training that challenges our forces, a leader commitment to safety excellence is critical. To be ready to fight and win, we must maintain situational awareness and enforce safety standards to the letter. To assist your organizations in the ever-challenging environment we offer the following tactical safety resources to help reduce this risk to an acceptable level.

Because realistic training is vital in marinating a high level of readiness, it requires some degree of risk taking. Nevertheless, it is unacceptable to gamble with people's lives and military equipment in the name of training realism or urgency. Effective training and daily mission requirements can be accomplished safely through good planning, proper supervision, and strict enforcement of approved standards. As always, the Tactical Safety Network welcomes your comments and feedback. Please contact the Tactical Safety Network via e-mail with your questions and comments regarding tactical safety.
