AEMP Certifies First Department of Defense Green Fleet

September 5, 2013

The 49th Logistics Readiness Squadron Holloman Air Force Base (49 LRS) is the first Department of Defense fleet to be recognized as a Gold-certified Green Fleet by AEMP. Currently, the 49 LRS diesel equipment fleet meets all governmental requirements for emissions, as well as the high level of criteria required by AEMP for Gold certification in the Green Fleet program.

“Our Airmen have been striving to ensure our unit stays at the forefront of technology and environmental stewardship,” said Gabriel Hage, chief master sergeant, 49 LRS.

The 49 LRS provides comprehensive logistics support to include deployment/ distribution management, fuels management, material management and vehicle management functions sustaining the 49 WG and 26 associate units. The squadron executes deployment command and control of Holloman’s F-22A/MQ-1/MQ-9 fleet and 2,600+ Unit Type Codes.  The team manages a $381 million supply account, a 974-vehicle fleet, 4,800 mobility bags, 2,800 weapons and $31 million in fuel transactions annually.

“We will use this achievement as a springboard toward further environmental enhancement endeavors and as a showcase program from which others may learn and emulate,” Hage said.
