Our EMS trains personnel in many of the organizations on the base so they have the environmental knowledge to relay environmental concerns to the appropriate person. In addition we use: multiple trainings classes to inform personnel on environmental issues; multi-level inspection programs to prevent incidents and ensure environmental compliance; and environmental goal setting to continually improve and prevent pollution.

Our Hazardous Waste Center provides comprehensive environmental services, including accumulation point inspections, container pick-up and delivery, waste characterization, labeling, and necessary paperwork for disposal. Environmental Compliance section offers several hazardous waste and hazardous material training courses to personnel and contractors working on the installation.
