ERDC Safety trains with NASA
HOUSTON (Aug. 18, 2017) - Environmental Protection Specialist Kelly Rowland, (gray shirt) became a qualified dive safety representative as she completed a two-week training course at NASA's Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory. "The NASA instructors and facilities were just what you would expect, totally professional," said Rowland. "The first couple of days you kind of pinch yourself because you're training in the same facility with astronauts. By the third day it starts to become normal and you settle in to excellent training." Rowland's newly acquired skills enhance the ERDC Safety and Environmental Management Office's capabilities especially in its support of the center's dive team.
