NSA-PC Recognized for Installation Excellence
Posted on: May 29, 2013
Last week, U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel announced the 2013 winners for the Commander in Chief’s Annual Award for Installation Excellence. Winning the Navy category was Naval Support Activity Panama City. The Installation Excellence Award is given to the “best of the best” military installations that exemplify support for their mission and are innovative in processes that are key to the installation’s operations.
Naval Support Activity Panama City won the Navy category for their work related to health and safety, energy efficiency and protecting the environment. The installation participated and achieved stage three in the Occupational Health and Safety Agency Voluntary Protection Program, which improves the health and safety of employees. This installation also installed solar panels to reduce fuel dependence and created a “living shoreline” to protect against erosion and redevelop the coastal habitat.
The Florida Chamber asks that you join us in congratulating the Naval Support Activity Panama City installation for receiving the Commander in Chief’s Annual Award for Installation Excellence. The Florida Chamber has long been a supporter of our military and defense industry and has worked to ensure that Florida’s 20 installations and three unified command centers remain well-positioned to avoid the next round of base realignment and closures, also known as BRAC. This legislative session, the Florida Chamber supported legislation that would prevent encroachment around Florida’s military installations, ensuring that they will remain well-positioned for their best use.
