Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, AK Transition Summit
Empowering the Military Community - Enhancing Veteran Competitiveness
July 22-23, 2015
JBER road conditions are now GREEN and motorcycle season is officially open.
Riders are expected to adhere to 673 ABW Commander's Letter on JBER Motorcycle Riding dated 26 March 2015 while operating on base. Safety is of the upmost importance when operating a motorcycle; riders should contact their respective Safety Officer to coordinate training and/or contact Wing Safety 552-5035/6850 with any questions. Please use caution as there is still gravel on some road surfaces; others may be slick during morning/late evening times as these conditions may affect braking/handling. Motorcycle
riders should check for Road Condition updates, as weather conditions can still vary and motorcycles may only be operated on JBER during Road Condition GREEN.

MEMORANDUM FOR ALL JBER MOTORCYCLE OPERATORS
Bears and Bird Feeders
Bears' love for bird seed is a surprising fact for new Alaskans experiencing their first spring, and a good memory jogger for us more experienced Alaskans. Bears are particularly attracted to suet and oily sunflowers often found in Alaskan bird feeders. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game recommends that bird feeders be taken down in mid-March. With plenty of natural food items available during the unfrozen months, birds do not need the food and the risk that the feeders pose as a bear attractant is too great to ignore. Please take the time this week-end to remove your bird feeders for the season. Your actions will reduce wildlife conflict in your neighborhood and perhaps save you the cost of a citation for negligent feeding of wildlife (5AAC 92.230).

Aurora Military Housing Notice
As of March 6, Aurora Military Housing has surpassed 95% occupancy levels, meaning they are no longer "in the waterfall" and therefore placement of unaccompanied personnel in Aurora Housing has been discontinued. For further information, contact Aurora Military Housing at (907)-753-1023.
"In the waterfall" refers to periods when AMH occupancy levels fall below 95%, when AMH can offer placement to other eligible tenants (service members that do not receive BAH with dependent rate). Once they have rebounded from the lower occupancy level, AMH returns to offering only to target tenants, which are members that receive the BAH with dependent rate.
