SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --
Beginning this month, the 50th Force Support Squadron gave the gift of a one-stop-shop of information, events and more for Team Schriever and their families.
The 50 FSS website, www.50fss.com is officially active and composed of several sections important to base personnel and families.
“We wanted to make the website easy to navigate. That way, anyone can get to where they need to go and what they need to know,” said Jennifer Stark, 50 FSS marketing director. “If they can do that, then we’re pretty happy.”
The sections are broken into easily accessible tabs that include: Child Development Center, School Age Care, Outdoor Recreation, Information Tickets and Travel, Fitness, Framing, New Boston ODR, Airman and Family Readiness Center, People and Personnel, and Marketing.
Each section features a description, location, contact information, as well as links to pertinent references to enable a solid understanding of the section, and a person to speak with if they have any questions or need to engage.
“It’s not going to be an interactive site; it wouldn’t be where people could make reservations or fill out any forms, but it would give you all the information you need to make the reservations or fill out forms through the proper avenues,” Stark said.
For example, if someone visiting the site were to select the section for “People and Personnel,” the page would contain information on the Military Personnel Section’s location, hours of operation, points of contact, as well as instructions on the services they provide. It is a useful tool, not only the personnel utilizing it, but to the members working within the MPS.
"The development of the 50 FSS website is a great addition to our available resources,” said 1st Lt. Zachary Hornberger, MPS chief. “The customer base of the 50 Force Support Squadron includes all installation employees, retired service members and their families. This new website allows us to build better avenues of communication and ensure that people know about the programs and services our teams work diligently to provide."
Despite the wealth of information the 50 FSS website contains in the early stages, Stark made clear that FSS will continue to work hard to ensure the website is continuously improving. One such project is the website’s calendar feature.
“My favorite part we’re working on integrating, it’s not perfect yet, would be our calendar service,” Stark said. “Information and dates of events can be very difficult to put into the hands of our Schriever personnel. Putting our content in one location, for us, will be the most exciting part; this will hopefully consolidate our communication resources.
“I really think us even having an FSS website as a way to reach people is exciting,” she said.
