Electrical hazards in Iraq, Kuwait
The U.S. Army is taking steps to tackle electrical concerns in Iraq and Kuwait.
In concert with Task Force SAFE (Safety Action for Fire and Electricity), this focus on electrical safety includes places where Soldiers, Army civilians, and contracted employees work and live.
The 401st Army Field Support Brigade (AFSB) in Kuwait and 402nd AFSB in Iraq are aggressively directing facilities inspections for electrical hazards. Common deficiencies identified include improper grounding and bonding.
