  • As the western area of Colorado Springs begins to assess damage from the severe weather that passed through Sept. 13, crews at Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station also begin their clean-up process. Heavy rains caused flooding and rock slides, limiting normal traffic access to the installation and creating a large mud and debris field near the main entrance of the mountain. Personnel working inside the mountain are utilizing the secondary entrance until the debris is cleared. “The only change to those working inside the mountain is the entrance they are using to get in and out of the mountain,” said Steve Rose, 721st Mission Support Group deputy director. CMAFS and its missions inside the mountain, however, remain fully operational and unaffected by the damage near the main entrance. “The crews working overnight didn’t even know there was flooding and rockslides,” said Rose. “We are built to overcome a lot more than this and our missions will continue unhindered.” Safety remains the top priority for leaders here. “Our Airmen and engineers are surveying the area for any additional damage as well as creating a plan for clean up,” said Col. Travis Harsha, CMAFS installation commander. “Our top priority is to ensure the safety and security of the installation while sustaining the missions inside the mountain.” The 721st Security Forces Squadron is on scene to maintain force protection and security at the mountain. The 721st Civil Engineer Squadron along with 615th Engineer Company from Fort Carson, Colo., are also on scene conducting initial clean up operations and constructing a damage assessment and repair plan. “Our relationship with the engineers at Fort Carson has been key to our successful clean-up,” said Harsha. “The 721st CES and 615th Engineer Company have worked together flawlessly to provide immediate support for our mountain team.” CMAFS personnel looking for updated information should check the website, www.peterson.af.mil, or call the CMAFS weather and reporting information line at 474-3333.
