Service Members and their families are strong and face many adventures throughout their military career. Military life can also be stressful at times and some may start to feel isolated, overwhelmed, or angry when dealing with challenging situations. These reactions can be common responses to life events. However, for some, these feelings may be signs of more serious conditions. People coping with challenges may feel like there is no escape from their symptoms, leading them to have thoughts of suicide. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) – press ‘1’ for the Military Crisis Line or Text to 838255. You can also visit www.militarycrisisline.net.
The Fort Bragg Military Community also has several local resources to help Service Members and their families to include the Chaplains at 910-396-6564 during normal business hours or at 910-396-HELP after duty hours. You can also reach out to Womack Social Work Services at 910-907-7869.
If you or someone you know is talking about suicide get them assistance immediately with three steps – Ask, Care, Escort. Ask your loved one if they are thinking of killing themselves. Care for your loved one – actively listen to show understanding, remove any means that could be used for self-injury. Escort your loved one – never leave them alone! Escort them to Chain of Command, Chaplain, Behavioral Health Professional, or Primary Care Provider.
WATCH FOR LEAKS – HAVE THEM REPAIRED
- A dripping faucet is more than annoying...it is expensive. Even small leaks can waste significant amounts of water. Hot water leaks are a waste of water and of the energy used to heat the water.
- Leaks inside the toilet can waste up to 300 gallons of water a day. Toilet leaks can be detected by adding a few drops of food coloring to water in the toilet tank. If the colored water appears in the bowl, the toilet is leaking.
- If you have a leaking faucet or toilet, please report it right away to your community center. If you hear water running in home and there is no water being used or consumed by your family, please report immediately to your community center.
HOW TO SAVE WATER IN THE BATHROOM
- Do not let the faucet flow while brushing your teeth or shaving. Use a glass of water for rinsing teeth.
- Take showers instead of tub baths. Limit showers to five (5) minutes. A full tub requires about 70 gallons of water; a shower of less than five (5) minutes uses about 12-20 gallons. A savings of about 1000 gallons per month.
- Avoid using your toilet for a wastebasket or ashtray. Extra flushes waste water and money.
- Do not let hot water run continuously when you shave. Close the drain and fill the basin with water instead.
- If the toilet handle frequently sticks in the flush position letting water run constantly, report to your property management team immediately! A running toilet is very expensive and results in usage of 300 gallons per day.
HOW TO SAVE WATER IN THE KITCHEN AND LAUNDRY
- Refrigerate a bottle of drinking water instead of letting a faucet flow until the water is cold enough to drink.
- Use a dishpan or plug the sink for washing and rinsing dishes.
- Do not use running water to thaw meat or other frozen foods. Defrost food overnight in the refrigerator, or use the defrost setting on your microwave.
- Energy efficient appliances are usually water efficient too.
- A full dishwasher is more water efficient than washing the same load by hand. If you choose to wash dishes by hand, fill a pan with hot water for rinsing. Don’t let hot water run continuously.
- Only run your dishwasher when it is full in order to make the best use of water, energy, and detergent.
- Cut down on the amount of rinsing you do before loading the dishwasher. Most modern dishwashers do an excellent job of cleaning dishes, pots, and pans all by themselves.
- Dishwashers use as much as 25 gallons per cycle.
- Clothes washers can use as much as 30-35 gallons of water per cycle.
- Wait until you have a full load of laundry before running the machine to save both water and energy. If you can't wait for a full load, use the right water level to match the size of the load. Use as low a water temperature as possible for the wash cycle of your clothes. Use cold water for all rinse cycles.
Keep your refrigerator and freezer at the right temperature. The refrigerator should be between 38° F and 42° F and the freezer between 0° F and 5° F.
