SMC Key Spouse

Is your spouse interested in becoming more involved at Los Angeles AFB in El Segundo or Fort MacArthur in San Pedro?  If so, he or she should consider becoming a Key Spouse for LAAFB/SMC.


What is a Key Spouse?

The Key Spouse program is an official unit/family program designed to enhance readiness and establish a sense of Air Force community. It is a commander's program that promotes partnerships with unit leadership, volunteer Key Spouses appointed by the commander, families, the Airman & Family Readiness Center and other community and helping agencies.

A Key Spouse volunteer impacts mission readiness and retention by ensuring families have appropriate information and resources to meet their needs. The program has been standardized across the Air Force to address the needs of all military families with special emphasis on support to families across the deployment cycle.

RIAT 2018 Recap - Another Successful Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford. Thank you to all of our special guests and aeronautics fans for joining the 501st CSW and RAF in celebrating the Royal Air Force's 100th year anniversary.

#Pathfinders, A recent grass fire near one of our military family housing areas served as a reminder about fire safety. Though no individuals were hurt, it’s always important to know how to reach the various fire departments across the 501st. We've had unbelievably warm and dry weather these last four weeks. However, with it came the increased risk for fire. Monitor your BBQ grills and fire pits closely. Ensure cigarettes are extinguished and disposed of properly, not flicked into grass or out of a car window. Be vigilant if you burn your yard debris. A moment of carelessness can quickly get out of hand and put you, your family, and others at risk. Take a moment to inspect your home fire extinguisher. If you don't have one, local hardware stores carry them for £12-£25 based on bottle size. Also, ensure you and your family know how to reach the on and off base fire departments in the event of an emergency. If you’re not sure, you can visit the 501st Phone Directory at www.501csw.usafe.af.mil/Contact-Us/Phone-Directory. Enjoy the fantastic summer weather and be safe!
