JBA prepares for winter season

By Airman 1st Class Bridgitte Taylor 316th Wing Public Affairs

Joint Base Andrews leadership came together to discuss preparations for the upcoming winter season during the "All Things Snow" event at JBA, Md., Nov. 1, 2021. The intent of the event was to cover lessons learned from prior years, outline priorities on the airfield and main base roads, relay current status of de-icing chemicals and snow removal equipment, and run through a table top exercise to ensure all parties understood the various roles and responsibilities.

The event concluded with a "Snow Rodeo" where JBA leadership had the opportunity to operate various pieces of heavy equipment alongside Airmen from the 316th Civil Engineer Squadron. This allowed the senior leaders to gain additional insight into how the 316th CES operates during inclement weather as well as meet the Airmen who make it possible.
