Starting on Monday, 25 June, Eielson School gate will be open for only inbound traffic from 6:00am to 3:30pm, and it will be open for only outbound traffic from 4:00pm to 6:00pm!
Happy Tuesday! With PCS season at its peak, we wanted to share a helpful tool to get you and your families prepared for the move. The Housing Early Assistance Tool, or HEAT, allows you to get in contact with your future base, wherever it may be. For more information visit www.homes.mil or www.housing.af.mil. #PCSseason #HEAT #GFiscooler #GrandForksAFB #WotN 25th Air Force | Air Combat Command | United States Air Force
Quick reminder: During our current main gate closure, all DoD ID Cardholders can use the Eielson School entrance from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the week. It’s located north of the main gate. The commercial gate on Highway 2 is open 24/7 until the main gate reopens. To avoid excess traffic and long delays, it may be best to use the school entrance during peak hours! #WotN #FightinFromTheForks
Reminder: The front gate closes tomorrow! Please be mindful of the changes outlined in the attached article in preparation for your commute.
Mosquito season is here, but Airmen from pest management and public health are working together to keep the base population safe. As you may have heard, Grand Forks county recently had a mosquito test positive for West Nile Virus. While this may be scary to some, there is no cause for alarm according to public health. It is important to note, a mosquito tested positive, not a human. The actual statistics of West Nile Virus in humans is quite low. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most people who contract West Nile do not have any symptoms, 1 in 5 people develop some symptoms, and 1 in 150 develop serious illness.

WotN, aerial spray operations are underway again this morning.
Great news! Mosquito aerial operations will begin this morning and carry on throughout the day (weather pending). As a reminder, the C-130 Hercules will be making low passes around the installation, at an altitude of 100-150 feet. It is highly recommended that personnel, dependents and pets remain indoors during the aerial spray operations for at least 20 minutes, with windows closed after aerial spray operations are completed.
