U.S. Air Force Fact Sheet
JOINT BASE AGAINST DRUNK DRIVING

ABOUT US:

JBADD is a joint service volunteer based organization established as an extension of the Better Opportunities for Single Service Members (BOSS) program.  Our objective is to provide a contingency plan to the members of JBER and other Department of Defense ID card holders, with a safe, anonymous, and free ride home.  This program prevents both drunk driving incidents and the number of DUI’s across the installation.

OUR SERVICE:

We run our operations in the Warrior Center (655 Richardson Drive, JBER AK, 99505) every Friday and Saturday night 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. as well as holidays and down days. 

Call (907) 384-RIDE (7433) to get home safe!  This service is recommended to be used as a “last resort.”  

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AND REWARDS:

Volunteers can show up to the Warrior Zone as early as 10 p.m. on the nights of operation and can leave at any time.  There are snacks and drinks available as well as games and movies to choose from while volunteering.  There is a JBADD vehicle which can be utilized, volunteers are not obligated but can use their own vehicles (every dispatched response will need two personnel, a driver/escort combination).  We appreciate all the volunteers that come out to help!

Rewards:

On top of the honor of safely bringing home the DoD’s #1 weapon system (Soldiers/Airmen/Marines/Sailors/Coast Guardsman), below are additional incentives that volunteers can earn:

-Every 50 hours of volunteer time will be recognized by a Certificate of Achievement signed by an O-6  

    -This results in a “day off” for Air Force members    

    -This results in an ERB and 5 promotion points for Army members

-At 300 hours of volunteering, the Army Achievement Medal (for any branch of service)
