Cheyenne Mountain AFS Conducts Live Fire Training
Peterson Air Force Base - 06/10/15
The Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station fire department will conduct live fire training exercises from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. June 11 at the fire training center, located on the installation near Highway 115 and South Academy Boulevard.

This routine training is conducted periodically to ensure base emergency responders are prepared to handle a wide variety of emergencies on the installation. As part of cooperative agreements, the Department also assists with emergencies in the Broadmoor Bluffs neighborhood and the Cheyenne Mountain State Park. The training produces a large amount of smoke, and those traveling the I-25 and Highway 115 corridors and living adjacent to the installation should not be alarmed if they see smoke from this area. The base fire training center has significant safety controls in place to ensure the training environment remains safe, yet provides the maximum educational environment for the firefighting teams.

Brigadier General Shaw to hand-off command
Peterson Air Force Base - 06/08/15
PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colorado - After two years as Commander of the 21st Space Wing, Brig. Gen. Shaw will say farewell during a change of command ceremony from 10-11 a.m. June 12 here.

During his tenure at Peterson AFB, Shaw led the airmen of the 21st Space Wing through a collaborative partnership with the Colorado Springs community during the Skyfall exercise, a base-wide inspection, and worked with the Pikes Peak Area of Governments (PPACG) to win final approval of the Powers Road widening project.

"The PPACG is a great forum to let the local community know the needs of the base," Shaw said. "I think we are fortunate to be in one of the best communities you can be in for a military installation."

Shaw's next assignment will be at Offutt AFB, Nebraska as the deputy operations director for U.S. Strategic Command headquarters.

Col. Douglass Schiess will assume command of the 21st Space Wing.
