And Finally…

Please keep in mind that your safety is our primary concern. Remember the following important safety tips:

  • Uniformed security personnel, Law Enforcement and Open House staff are there to help. Follow all instructions and if you need assistance please ask.
  • Very few things on our flight line are soft to the touch; most things are made of metal and have lots of edges on them. Keep your eyes focused in the direction you're walking and be aware of low-hanging aircraft components, staff vehicles and other patrons.
  • Medical personnel are on call to render assistance if required. Notify any uniformed security person, law enforcement or Open House staff member if you or any member of your group requires medical attention. BEAT THE HEAT AND STAY HYDRATED!
  • Please listen and follow any directions given over the public address system!
