Volk Field Fire Department hosts community departments at open house
The DoD Safe Helpline provides round-the-clock resources for sexual assault survivors, but did you know they have a variety of ways to connect with them other than their 24/7 phone helpline? They also have resources for friends and family about how to support a survivor.
In recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, the #WisconsinNationalGuard sat down with Amber Garfoot, one of the state's nearly 50 victim advocates, for ten (plus one) questions. Learn more about the help a victim advocate can provide for survivors of sexual assault, as well as some of the unique benefits of Wisconsin National Guard's full-time Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program. #KnowYourMil #SAAPM
#WisconsinNationalGuard victim advocates offer wide array of support for sexual assault survivors
#DYK that the #WisconsinNationalGuard has nearly 50 victim advocates serving across the state at all levels of our organization? Victim advocates help survivors of sexual assault get the support and resources they need. #KnowYourMil #SAAPM
A short video clip of some of the training conducted at Volk Field Fire Departments Open House hosted 6 April 2019. Nearly 60 volunteer firemen from six departments attended the open house. The fire departments in attendance were Volk Field, Mauston, Lyndon Station, Oakdale, Camp Douglas, New Lisbon and Cutler.
It was another busy drill weekend at Volk Field. Congratulations to all of the Airmen that reenlisted this weekend and a special thank you to all of the local fire departments that came out to train with the Volk Field Fire Protection team.

As we observe Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the message is clear - there’s no room for sexual assault or harassment in the #WisconsinNationalGuard #SAAM https://dma.wi.gov/DMA/news/2019news/19033?fbclid=IwAR3ZdO3SjOa-BdHXj55SjHkRK3ZsipVCq-3rhjVEE17vk_ERT1KrJnZboAU
Sexual assault impacts more than just the individual survivor. It sends ripples throughout an organization, from immediate teammates to the highest echelons of leadership. It impacts families, friends, coworkers, and employers. It impacts everyone. This tree stands at the entrance of JFHQ throughout National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month to show all of us the broad impact of sexual assault. Wisconsin National Guard members will place teal ribbons here for every person in their life who is a victim of sexual assault. This tree will become a vivid demonstration of the broader impact of sexual assault on survivors, their support systems, and the organization as a whole. It tells us that survivors and witnesses are not alone and we are all here for them. If you are a current Wisconsin National Guard Soldier or Airman and would like to contribute to the tree, send a private message to this page or an email to ng.wi.wiarng.mbx.sarc-sapr@mail.mil. Wisconsin National Guard sexual assault survivors in need of help, call or text the Wisconsin National Guard Sexual Assault Response Coordinator at 608-469-2627 for 24/7 assistance, or visit https://safehelpline.org for additional resources.
