Keesler welcomes the Air Force Community Partnership Program

  • Published
Keesler leaders will host its first Air Force Community Partnership program meeting, May 3 at 10 a.m. in the Bay Breeze Events Center here.  Representatives from Mississippi state and local communities, and commercial entities are expected to attend. The program is designed to leverage military installation and local community capabilities and resources to obtain value and benefit in support of the Air Force and its business partners. 

Since October 2012, the Air Force’s AFCP program has generated more than 1,000 initiatives with a potential value/benefit of approximately $160 million over the next five years. These partnerships are identifying new and innovative ways of supporting Airmen and their families. Current initiatives include medical, emergency response, grounds maintenance, shared-use firing ranges, joint fire police training, and operations of installation services.

To RSVP, or get more information, please contact the 81st Training Wing Public Affairs Office by Tuesday, May 2, at 4 p.m., at 228-377-2783 or e-mail
