Be seen
Air Force Staff Sgt. Sheila deVera and Tech. Sgt. Raymond Mills, 673d Air Base Wing Public Affairs photojournalists, demonstrate why wearing a reflective belt to be seen is important. All uniformed military members on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson are required to wear reflective belts or a reflective material while outside on base during hours of darkness and inclement weather. Safety officials urge everyone, whether in uniform or not, to abide by this policy. The material used to create a reflective belt bounces light back at the source, making it easier for drivers to see pedestrians and cyclists. A reflective belt is not required while wearing Air Force physical training uniforms, since it is made with reflective material, but Army PT uniforms require reflective belts. JBER instruction 91-202 explains, in detail, when and where reflective belts must be worn, but a good rule of thumb is if it is less than full daylight conditions, wear the belt.
