Energy Conservation

Energy Conservation

Energy and utility usage and costs have a major impact on the Army's operational budget.

The Army Reserve’s Energy Program provides Soldiers and stakeholders with conservation ideas and education to achieve the Army’s Energy Goals.

Our vision is to be the Army Reserve’s leader in energy conservation supporting local initiatives and promoting energy awareness and education.

Various Federal laws and regulations have set requirements for the Department of Defense regarding Green Procurement, recycling, energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, and alternative fuel use. The facility is responsible for conserving valuable resources and preventing pollution through best management practices.

All of us can lend a hand through energy conservation and awareness. This will reduce the energy impact on our budget. This will result in more money available for Soldier training and readiness which is our real mission.

Facility Protection

Facility Protection

The 88th RSC full fills a critical role in the physical security of Army Reserve Facilities within the command’s 19-state region.

There are six USARC Compliance Inspectors in the region who perform mandatory inspections of all USAR assets on an 18 month rotational basis with re-inspections of Not Adequate inspections occurring 6 months after an Initial inspection.

Inspections identify structural and procedural deficiencies. Procedural deficiencies are individual command responsibility, while structural deficiencies require a Customer Support System (CSS) ticket input by the Facility Coordinator.

Inspected commands can access their inspection reports via the new Physical Security Compliance Inspection Tool (PSICT) at https://opminspections.ar.ds.army.mil OFTS. To be able to see a report, commanders and command representatives must first access the site, so that their digital imprint is made.

The 88th RSC Antiterrorism program provides multiple services to units and Soldiers across the region.

Support includes threat, criticality and vulnerability assessments, as well as guidance for facility antiterrorism planning. Additionaly, the 88th RSC conducts comprehensive program reviews. All commands are required to conduct triennial AT Program Assessments and forward a completed copy to 88th RSC ATO
