Peterson AFB opens evacuation shelter
PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. - Peterson Air Force Base opened an emergency evacuation shelter at the Peterson Fitness and Sports Center for military members and families affected by the Black Forest and Royal Gorge fires June 11.
The shelter is open to all personnel with base access and can accommodate approximately 100 people. The shelter will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
"We want to ensure all personnel affected by these fires know there are resources and support available," said Col. Chuck Arnold, 21st Mission Support Group commander. "We have cots, drinking water and shower facilities available to evacuated military families."
Pets cannot be accommodated at the shelter. More information about locations to shelter animals evacuated by the Black Forest Fire can be found on the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region website at www.hsppr.org/blackforestfire. Personal weapons are also not allowed in the shelter.
The fitness center will not open for regular fitness center patrons until the shelter is closed or is no longer needed. The aquatics center and outdoor fitness locations remain unaffected.
Personnel living in the pre-evacuation or evacuation zones are recommended to have their bags packed in the event of a short-notice evacuation.
A few suggested items to pack include critical documents such as passports, social security cards, birth certificates and bills of sale; clothing including three days of full outfits and towels; child care supplies such as diapers, formula, and favorite pillows, blankets, or stuffed animals; medications and toiletries; pet supplies; and electronic devices such as cell phones, computers, and chargers.

A Huffington Post poll asked Facebook users what food they’d be willing to eat every day for the rest of their lives. Answers included the usual suspects- macaroni and cheese, pizza, burritos, grilled cheese, cheese fries, lasagna (sense a theme?)- as well as some more surprising choices like cereal, kale, tofu and oatmeal. Kale? Really?
Tammy: I could soooooo eat pizza everyday!!!! What food would you pick?

Tammy: Friday night was the Falcon/Peyton Relay for Life at Sand Creek High School. I am so happy to say that...as of Sunday night, we raised an INCREDIBLE $53,027! And all the money hasn't been counted yet so that will go higher. It was a wonderful event again this year and if you donated or participated, I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. The American Cancer Society does amazing things with the money raised. Click here to see more pics!
