The beta version of the electronic Air Force Bioenvironmental Engineering Field Manual (e-BE FM) has been completed and is out for testing. This e-BE FM is a PDF-based document enhanced with web-based calculators, searchable tables, useful links to outside resources, and updated content.
Defense Occupational & Environmental Health Readiness System (DOEHRS) Support at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey
ASG provided high-impact DOEHRS (Defense Occupational & Environmental Health Readiness System) program training and data input support for the Bioenvironmental Engineering Flight at Incirlik AB, Turkey. DOEHRS is the management information system tool used by the Bioenvironmental Engineering personnel to track the longitudinal occupational exposure history of all military personnel.
During the annual ASG company meeting in Williamsburg VA, ASG employees and their family members participated in a community service project teaming with Stop Hunger Now (http://www.stophungernow.org) and packaged 10,000 nutritious meals that will be shipped to a school somewhere in the world to feed hungry children.
ASG was awarded a contract to support the Kirtland AFB Bioenvironmental Engineers by providing training courses to enhance capabilities related to water vulnerability assessments and water system surveys. The training will focus on methodologies, risk assessments, and classifications of water sources, treatment systems, distributions systems, water storage, and sanitary surveys followed by data entry into the DOEHRS water survey data module.
ASG recently conducted an innovative training workshop for cross-disciplinary CBRN/Hazmat responders. Applying 7 years of lessons learned and observations from over 1,500 full-scale exercises with various hazmat, fire, medical, law enforcement, responders and emergency managers, ASG implemented a unique and highly-effective training platform to integrate the USAF's Fire and Emergency Services, Bioenvironmental Engineers and Readiness and Emergency Management personnel into a seamless, unified response operation.
On September 25, 2012, ASG was awarded a multi-year GSA contract with the Air Mobility Command Surgeon General to increase and enhance Occupational Environmental Health medical capabilities to support global engagements and sustainment operations across multiple Air Force Major Commands (MAJCOMs), including AMC, ACC, and USAFE. ASG will be supporting the AMC Surgeon General and other MAJCOMs by providing direct support to installation level Bioenvironmental Engineering staff and Team Aerospace through highly focused Training Support Site Visits and integrated emergency response training.
ASG emergency response specialists worked closely with the City of Portsmouth Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) to update the Portsmouth Local Emergency Response Plan to enhance their implementation of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) of 1986. The planning process included the review of the current hazardous material facilities (Tier II reporting), in order to update the inventory of hazardous materials that met the Tier II thresholds within the City of Portsmouth and an analysis of local responders’ preparedness to respond to industrial chemical releases within the City.
