McMorris Rodgers Praises Fairchild Air Force Base’s Environmental Stewardship

(Washington, D.C.) Today, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers praised Fairchild Air Force Base’s dedication to protecting the environment, employee safety and occupational health.

On June 4th, members of the Fairchild Air Force Base Environmental Management Subcommittee received the 2007 Secretary of Defense Environmental Excellence in Weapons System Acquisition award during a formal ceremony at the Pentagon.

Fairchild Air Force Base’s Environmental Management (EM) Subcommittee has achieved substantial accomplishments in the area of green procurement and pollution prevention acquisition. The team ensures every acquisition initiative takes into account a wide variety of environmental, safety and occupational health considerations.

“Fairchild provides a shining example of how base-level efforts can significantly improve the system acquisition efforts while observing and developing new ways to protect our environment,” Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers said. “This Department of Defense level recognition is well deserved and complements many of the countless environmentally friendly programs and efforts taking place in Eastern Washington.”
