SUFFOLK, Va. -- Sailors and Department of the Navy civilian employees assigned to Naval Information Forces (NAVIFOR), Naval Network Warfare Command, Fleet Cyber Command/U.S. 10th Fleet Suffolk and Navy Cyber Defense Operations Command participated in a Fall/Winter safety fair, which featured more than 15 booths, Nov. 1.

Vice Adm. Brian Brown, commander, NAVIFOR, delivered the fair’s opening remarks and thanked all the safety committee members and vendors. “Safety is everyone’s responsibility,” said Brown. “With the upcoming holidays, we want to reach out to our Sailors and civilians and have them make the right choices for themselves and their families. We want everybody to maintain safety all the time and raise awareness of potential dangers that they may not necessarily know exist.”

More than 500 Sailors and civilian employees attended the safety fair which covered various topics and stations including hearing conservation, motorcycle safety, family advocacy program, CPR, Suffolk police, Suffolk fire & rescue, suicide prevention awareness, ride share and sexual assault prevention and response. The fair was organized by the command's safety office.

“The safety fair is designed to help educate service members as well as civilian employees on a variety of safety topics," said Lt. Christopher Williams, NAVIFOR safety officer. "We, as leadership, must do everything in our power to encourage, inform, and promote the safety and well-being of our Sailors and civilians."

One of the main goals of the fair was for the Sailors and civilians who attended to pass the information they learned on to someone else.

NAVIFOR’s mission is to provide combat-ready Information Warfare forces to operational commanders, ashore and afloat, that are forward deployable, fully trained, properly manned, capably equipped, always ready, well-maintained and combat sustainable.
