Curfew
The time of year is upon us to remind ourselves and family members of the guidance created to keep us safe.
First, Base curfew for dependents and sponsored guests under the age of 18 is from 2300-0600 Sunday through Thursday and 0100-0600 on Fridays, Saturdays, and holidays.  Exceptions: accompanied by a parent or guardian, going to/from work, one hour after termination of a sanctioned school function or authorized travel between on/off base quarters with parental knowledge and approval.  Violators of base curfew will be returned to their parent/sponsor. At no time will minor family members be allowed in or near dormitories, unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Second, Children 9 years of age and younger may play outside but must have access (visual sight or hearing distance) to adult supervision. Tot-playgrounds are unsupervised and children 4 years of age or younger may not be left alone without adult supervision.

Third, everyone who rides bicycles on an AF installation must wear a properly fastened and approved (e.g., Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), American National Standards Institute (ANSI) or Snell Memorial Foundation) bicycle helmet.  In addition to bicycles, all personnel must wear an approved helmet when roller skating, in-line skating, skateboarding, or operating foot-propelled scooters.  Skating, skateboarding, and scooters are prohibited on installation roadways except for street crossings and incidental road access caused by pedestrians. We recommend anyone enjoying these methods of recreation wear elbow and knee pads to prevent injuries.  All personnel will comply with all pedestrian related traffic laws.

Finally, you can find the above guidance in 90 Missile Wing Instruction 40-106.  Please feel free to share this with your personnel and contact MSgt Rolon, at 773-4082 with any questions.
