Safe driving starts at the top
The 2016 National Road
Safety Week campaign has
wrapped up at 14 Wing Greenwood.
The purpose of the May
16 to 20 program is to raise
awareness of safe driving
habits and techniques across
Canadian Armed Forces bases
and wings. Each year, the
campaign focuses on a specific
theme: this year’s theme was
“Management’s Responsibility” to prevent collisions and
At 14 Wing, Transportation
and Electrical and Mechanical
Engineering Squadron’s Road
and Vehicle (R&V) Safety Section supported National Road
Safety Week primarily by increasing safety patrols around
14 Wing and Land Forces
Atlantic Area Training Centre
Aldershot. As R&V Safety staff
identified drivers who were
demonstrating safe driving
habits - observing speed limits,
wearing seat belts, using signal
lights and proper backing techniques; for example - individuals were stopped and informed
of the national campaign and
then presented with a small
prize. These personnel were
also entered into a draw for
some larger prizes.
The prevention of needless
collisions and damage to Department of National Defence
vehicles and property is an
ongoing effort. R&V Safety
continually offers a variety
of driving courses, which all
aim to promote safe driving
techniques and practices all
DND drivers should follow. As
well, as collisions occur, R&V
Safety investigates each one
to determine the root causes
and factors. Remedial actions,
including education, awareness
and training; are recommended
to the Transport Authority to
prevent reoccurrences.
In addition to the efforts
of R&V Safety, management supervision of and instructions has regulations in place that
plays a critical role in enforcing given to drivers of DND vehicles dictate, when a workplace has
safe driving practices. Effective must always take place. DND multiple workers using one or
more vehicles, a “multi-driver
task sheet” must be used to
track who used which vehicle,
when. This information allows
the chain of command, as
well as R&V Safety, to narrow
critical details that may relate
to collisions or incidents of
Management is also instrumental whenever certain driver
courses are offered within the
unit, i.e. ATV/ LOSV, fork lift,
mule, etc. Management has
a responsibility to select appropriate unit staff, which are
trained and qualified to act as
driver instructors and driver
examiners for courses. Management must also select students for these courses – not
everyone may be suitable for
that type of training. Without
management’s involvement,
the potential for unnecessary
damage to equipment and
injury to personnel greatly
La Semaine nationale de
la sécurité sur la route de
2016 s’est terminée à la 14e
Escadre Greenwood.
L’objet du programme qui
s’est déroulé du 16 au 20
mai consistait à accroître les
connaissances relatives aux
habitudes et aux techniques
de conduite sécuritaire à
l’échelle des bases et des
escadres des Forces armées
canadiennes. Chaque année,
la campagne met l’accent sur
des thèmes précis. Le thème
de cette année était « Responsabilité de la direction »
en matière de prévention des
collisions et des dommages.
À la 14e Escadre, la Section
de la sécurité routière et des
véhicules de l’Escadron –
Transport et génie électrique
et mécanique a soutenu la
Semaine nationale de la sécurité d’abord en augmentant
les patrouilles de sécurité aux
environs de la 14e Escadre
et du Centre d’instruction du
Secteur de l’Atlantique de la
Force terrestre Aldershot.
Le personnel de la sécurité
routière et des véhicules ont
déterminé les conducteurs
qui adoptaient des habitudes
de conduite sécuritaire –
observation des limites de
vitesse, port de la ceinture de
sécurité, utilisation des feux
clignotants et techniques de
conduite en marche arrière

ont notamment été interceptées et informées de la
campagne nationale; on leur
a remis un petit prix. Elles
ont également été inscrites à
un tirage pour des prix plus
La prévention des collisions et des dommages
inutiles aux véhicules et aux
biens du ministère de la Défense nationale représente un
effort constant. La Section
de la sécurité routière et des
véhicules offre une variété de
cours de conduite, lesquels
visent tous à promouvoir les
techniques et les pratiques
de conduite sécuritaire que
tous les conducteurs du MDN
devraient adopter. De même,
lorsqu’il y a des collisions, la
Section de la sécurité routière
et des véhicules effectue une
d’un registre de conducteurs
multiples, lorsque plusieurs
travailleurs utilisent un ou
plusieurs véhicules dans un
lieu de travail, afin de pouvoir
déterminer les personnes
qui ont utilisé les véhicules
et les dates d’utilisation. Ces
renseignements permettent
à la chaîne de commandement, ainsi qu’à la Section
de la sécurité routière et des
véhicules, de restreindre les
détails essentiels qui peuvent
porter sur les collisions ou les
incidents ayant occasionné
des dommages.
La direction joue également
un rôle de premier plan lorsque des cours de conduite
sont offerts au sein de l’unité
(VTT/motoneiges, chariot
élévateur, tracteur, etc.). Elle
est chargée de sélectionner
les membres appropriés du
personnel de l’unité, qui sont
compétents et qualifiés pour
agir à titre d’instructeurs et
d’examinateurs des cours de
conduite. La direction doit
également sélectionner les
stagiaires de ces cours – ce
type de formation ne convient
pas à toutes les personnes.
Sans l’engagement de la
direction, la possibilité de
dommages inutiles à l’équipement et de blessures au
personnel augmente de manière importante.

High expectations in charity challenge for dad
Sergeant Brian Milligan,
The Aurora Newspaper
Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Leona Conrick
never dreamt she would one
day be heading to Peru to
climb Machu Picchu.
While growing up in St.
John’s, Conrick certainly
made the trek up Signal Hill
several times. The elevation
to the top of Signal Hill is
400 feet, pretty much a walk
in the park compared to the
challenge she faces travelling
7,000 kilometres to climb Machu Picchu - with an elevation
of just under 15,000 feet.
“Events in life can certainly
change your priorities and,
when my father was diagnosed with Leukemia, I knew
that I had to do something,”
Conrick says.
“It is such a helpless feeling
when you find out someone
close to you has cancer. I
needed to find some way to
feel empowered.”
From Signal Hill to Machu Picchu…
Leona Conrick is putting
her father’s health top
of mind as she trains to
climb Machu Picchu in his
Sergeant B. Milligan
Conrick, the Greenwood
Military Family Resource Centre’s volunteer services manager, knew her co-worker,
Michelle Darrell, was participating in the Team in Training,
lenge online, an organization
that allows individuals or
groups to choose an adventure or challenge and use it as
a vehicle to raise awareness
and funds for a cause. Con-
running a marathon to raise
funds and awareness for
the Leukemia & Lymphoma
Society of Canada. Loving the
idea - but not being a runner,
Conrick found Charity Chal-
rick registered for the Charity
Challenge last July.
She has since spent the
year preparing: her indoor
training involves going to
the gym three times a week,
where she used the dreaded,
mind numbing, mechanical stair climber - until she
realized this only trains you
for going up, not down. She
switched to actual stair climbing for a minimum of 30 minutes, and added numerous
lunges and squats. She always finishes with 30 minutes
on the bike. Outdoors, Conrick has travelled throughout
the province and has hiked
Cape Split several times (a
16-kilometre distance at an
elevation of 450 feet), Pollets
Cove in Cheticamp (a 20-kilometre route with an elevation
of 1,200 feet) and Granite
Ridge in Musquodoboit (an
18-kilometre distance with an
elevation of 400 feet).
Conrick says the best part
of the whole charity chal-
lenge to date has been the
outpouring of support from
her family, friends and the
community. She has raised
$3,500 towards her target
of $5,000 and, based on her
dedication and determination,
she will reach that summit
as well.
“I am climbing a mountain,
but the real hero in this story
is my father. He told me from
the beginning that he was
going to kick cancer in the
butt, and he has! It is his
determination that continues
to inspire me.”
With the help of a trial drug
Conrick’s father’s cancer is
now in remission. He will be
with her in spirit every step
of the way, as she leaves
for Peru July 21 and returns
August 2.

You don’t have to be super
fit or an avid cyclist to participate in the June 19 Boomer’s
This year’s Greenwood
event consists of three riding
options: a 40-kilometre route,
an 85-kilometre distance
and a full 125K. Start time is
at 9 a.m. from the 14 Wing
Greenwood Fitness & Sports
Centre. After the ride, there
will be a BBQ and prize draws
at the finish line.

fitness staff have moved to a
new electronic delivery system for FORCE evaluations,
which captures all results

“It would be great to see
the residents of our towns
and villages support our
event by, perhaps, wearing
red, flying a Canadian flag
along the route or making a
donation. Boomer’s Ride is
to honour Canadian soldiers
who have given their lives in
the line of duty while serving
in Afghanistan, and each cyclist will carry on their bikes
the biography of one or two
of our fallen soldiers.”
Funds raised from this
year’s event will support a
great local shelter for women
and children, Chrysalis House
of Kentville.
May 27, some Boomer’s
team members and volunteers participated in an
all-morning spin-a-thon in
front of the F&S Centre. Approximately $300 was raised.
Brace says it is always great
to raise funds, but it is even
more important to raise
“Hopefully, we’ll see more
people sign up for the event
June 19. Registering is as
simple as going to the Boomer’s website and, within a
couple of minutes, you are
part of the team. If there is
anyone that has any apprehension or concern about
their ability keeping them
from signing up, I personally
assure you that this event is
for everyone.”
Petrovic would love to
see wing units, sections and
squadrons challenge each
other to sign up - and they will
certainly be recognized for
their efforts. To register or for

This is my therapy
Voici ma thérapie
Descendre un sentier pour
vélo à toute vitesse sous un
ciel ensoleillé fait oublier tous
les instants de stress de la journée : c’est la « thérapie » par les
loisirs à laquelle a recours le
Ltv Aaron Bradley.
Chaque année se célèbre
Juin, le mois des loisirs dans
le cadre des Programmes de
soutien du personnel (PSP)
pour démontrer les nombreux
bienfaits des activités de loisirs. Le thème de cette année,
« Voici ma thérapie », souligne
les effets positifs des activités
récréatives pour se rétablir et
se préparer aux défis à venir.
« Le cyclisme est un moyen
de s’évader du quotidien. Le
temps passé à vélo libère
du stress et est propice à la
réflexion, affirme Bradley. «En
plus d’augmenter la résistance physique, le cyclisme
augmente la force mentale, ce
qui, bien entendu, influence les
autres aspects de la vie. »
Que ce soit dans des clubs
de triathlon ou dans les séances
de sécurité à vélo, le cyclisme
est l’un des nombreux loisirs
que peut pratiquer la communauté des militaires grâce
aux PSP. Les programmes de
loisirs revêtent une importance
particulière pour le personnel
militaire qui évolue au sein
d’une force dont la vocation est
principalement technique. Un
programme bien équilibré aide
à maintenir une bonne forme
physique complète et un état de
bien-être total : santé physique,
émotionnelle, mentale, sociale
et spirituelle de la personne.
Les affectations, les déploiements et la carrière, de même
que les horaires familiaux chargés sont parfois une source de
stress pour les membres des
familles des Forces armées
canadiennes, quel que soit
leur âge. Selon la formation

Aaron Bradley’s recreation
Each June, Personnel Support Programs (PSP) marks
June is Recreation Month
by illustrating the many benefits of recreational activities.
The 2016 theme, “This is
my therapy,” highlights how
recreational activities restore
us and better prepare us for
challenges ahead.
“Cycling is a getaway. Time
spent in the saddle is stressfree time that can be used
for reflection,” Bradley says.
“Besides physical strength,
cycling will increase your
mental toughness - which
will naturally transfer to other
areas of your life.”
From triathlon clubs to
safety rodeos, cycling is one
of many forms of recreation
the military community can
engage in through PSP. Recreation programming has
special value for military personnel functioning in a technically-oriented force. A wellbalanced program helps to
maintain total fitness, a state
of well-being - which includes
the physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual
health of the individual.
For Canadian Armed Forces
family members of all ages,
postings, deployments, careers and hectic family schedules can lead to periods of
stress. Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR) training advises
that engaging in things we
enjoy actually gives us more
energy to manage stress.
When under stress, we often
stop having fun due to a lack
of time or a decreased interest or drive. However, during
stressful times, it is even
more important to schedule
positive activities in our day
in order to effectively manage
the demands in our life.
“By recharging with physical activity and community
programs, CAF members and
their families help protect their
physical and mental health,”
says Colonel Andrew Downes,
Director of Mental Health.
“Scheduling fun, recreational
activities into our day can
help us to effectively manage
the stressful demands in our

on his bike three times a week
is a priority on his schedule.
As a youth, he was a runner
and swimmer, so he added
cycling to his recreation routine with the goal of trying a
“I have competed in triathlons, road racing, and most
recently cyclo-cross,” Bradley
says. “Anytime you reach a
goal, you get a feeling of accomplishment - and cycling
is no exception. Whether it’s
finishing your first Century

your first race, each goal completed will leave you thirsting
for more!”

Tremont Community
Cemetery Society
Once abandoned and
neglected, the Old Tremont
Cemetery is now showing
the signs of tender loving
care. The exterior of the
Old Tremont Cemetery has
an updated look, sporting
new gates and new fencing. This is all thanks to
a cooperative effort from
community members and
the municipal offices of
Kings County.
With the help of grants
from the Municipal Grants
to Organizations Fund and
their own fundraising, the
directors of the Tremont
Community Cemetery Society (a charitable, nonprofit society made up of
community members),
have orchestrated the
upgrading of the fencing
along the west side of the
historic cemetery use their
own labour, Valley suppliers and a local contractor.
This new fence line is not

can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by
using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more
