011119 | Nov. 6, 2019

JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska —

Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson will host a Public Release Open House Nov. 20, 2019 to share the results of the Air Installations Compatible Use Zones study.

The Department of Defense’s Air Installations Compatible Use Zones (AICUZ) program balances the needs of military operations with community concerns by focusing on people, safety and compatible development. AICUZ studies analyze the effects of military noise (sound), aircraft accident potential and land development on present and future neighbors of U.S. Air Force bases. This is the first AICUZ study conducted at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson incorporating the Training Area range noise as well as the Elmendorf and Bryant Army Air Field aircraft operations.

The Open House will be held in the Community Room at the Mountain View Neighborhood Library, 120 Bragaw St., in Anchorage from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. It will include five poster information stations along with subject matter experts from the Air Force Civil Engineer Center and JBER who will be available to discuss study topics and answer questions. Copies of the AICUZ study will be available for review and a link to access the study electronically will be available.

The public is invited to learn about the AICUZ study and its recommendations as well as about JBER’s training areas and airfield operations, which provide full-spectrum twenty-first century joint and multinational training. They also allow JBER to execute agile combat support to enable and sustain lethality.

COVID-19 Updates and What the U.S. Government is doing about it.

 The Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson Installation Commander has declared a Public Health Emergency, and directed Health Protection Condition (HPCON) to CHARLIE effective immediately and for the foreseeable future. HPCON CHARLIE is defined as an elevated risk of sustained community transmission.

The installation's top priority is preservation of force and mission while we work to protect the health, safety and welfare of our community. In order to achieve this, the Installation Commander has directed:

- Mission-Essential Personnel Reporting Only--contact your unit chain of command to determine your status and work requirements
- Stop Movement on the Installation--limited to mission essential travel only*
- Suspension of Trusted Travel Program; Closure of Government Hill Gate, and Post Road Gate closed to private auto traffic; Arctic Valley Gate closed on weekends; Richardson VCC closed--expect potential curtailments and closures
- Further reduction of garrison and tenant services--we are working to find ways to provide virtual services as much as possible
- Commissary and AAFES resources will remain available with current mitigating efforts in place
- CDCs will remain open for currently enrolled children but limited to on-duty mission essential members that are mil to mil, single military and CDC employees. Currently enrolled children with extenuating circumstance need to contact their CDC Director.

*Mission essential travel means remaining at home except to leave for work in critical jobs as prescribed by unit chains of command; to buy groceries or other important goods; to receive or provide health care; to drop off or pick up children from care; and to get fresh air while observing 6-foot social distancing between non-family members. Individuals are also encouraged to practice recommended personal and environmental hygiene, including regular hand washing.

The Installation Commander and 673d Medical Group Commander hosted a Facebook live virtual town hall to provide updates on the situation, and field questions from the community. You can find the townhall on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/JBERAK/videos/235719767571347/
