Williams (DDG 95), USS Cole (DDG 67), USS Ross (DDG 71), guided-missile frigate USS Samuel B Roberts (FFG 58), and fleet replenishment oiler USNS Kanawa (T-AO 196) will participate in the exercise, which is intended to improve interoperability between allied navies in an operationally challenging environment.“Joint Warrior provides our Sailors with an opportunity to work with our coalition partners in a unique tactical environment,” said Capt. Cary Krause, commander, DESRON 26. “This exercise will enhance our ability to operate with our allied navies, and will prepare our participating crews to conduct combined operations during deployment.”The U.S. Navy did not participate in Joint Warrior in 2013 due to budgetary constraints. However, with a new budget in place, the Department of Defense approved the Navy’s participation in Joint Warrior 14-1 because this exercise also serves as a pre-deployment certification event for the participating U.S. ships.“The entire spectrum of planned activities is a chance for our ships to train and hone their skills before their upcoming deployments,” said Krause. “We are thankful for this opportunity and excited to return to Scotland to participate in this exercise with our allies.”Joint Warrior will begin in late March and will last approximately two weeks. It will involve air, sea and ground assets from Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, New Zealand, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Exercise scenarios include small boat attacks, boarding operations, air defense, anti-submarine warfare, and ship maneuverability tasks. More than 30 individual units, including aviation, surface, and subsurface, are participating and playing a distinct role.[mappress]Press Release, March 17, 2014, 2014; Image: Wikimedia View post tag: Exercise View post tag: Naval View post tag: 26 View post tag: Joint View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Warrior Six ships, led by Commander, Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 26, departed the U.S. for Scotland, March 14, to participate in Joint Warrior 14-2, a semiannual, United Kingdom-led training exercise designed to provide NATO and allied forces a unique multi-warfare environment in which to prepare for global operations.

Recovery workers urged to use caution around utility lines

Posted on by

first_imgWith so much activity taking place around overhead and underground electrical equipment in the wake of Hurricane Irene, Central Vermont Public Service is warning workers to be careful to avoid situations involving contact with these types of devices. In some areas, utilities may have lost the ground-to-cable clearances they had prior to the flood. Vermont utilities urge all contractors and state and federal agencies to use caution along power lines, and encourage them to report any ‘defects’ to the utility systems, such as low-hanging lines, they may notice in the field. Central Vermont Public Service offers the following tips to help contractors stay safe during the recovery: Remember to stay at least 10 feet away from electrical lines with equipment such as crane booms and cables, excavators, backhoes and raised dump bodies.Stay away from and do not handle any downed utility cables. Report such conditions to the power company, and keep others away as well. Do not assume that since they’re down that they’re de-energized. Do not try to move them out of your way; either by hand or with your equipment.Please report any washed out or dangling poles and their support devices.Please report any washed out underground utility cables and stay clear of them.Please report any low-hanging utility cables and stay clear of them. Remember ground to overhead cable clearances may not be what they were prior to the flood. To contact CVPS, call 800-649-2877.last_img read more
