Fort Hood's EMS

Fort Hood maintains an Environmental Management System (EMS) to help us proactively deal with environmental laws, regulations and issues while enhancing the ability to accomplish our mission.

The EMS begins with our environmental policy and our commitment to prevent pollution. Fort Hood has designated a Management Representative and an EMS Coordinator to oversee and facilitate the EMS. The program follows the ISO 14001 standard, which includes among other elements, training and awareness, evaluation of compliance, and management review. The Environmental Quality Control Committee meets quarterly to ensure the continuing suitability, adequacy, and effectiveness of our EMS. The EQCC is chaired by the III Corps Commanding General and the Garrison Commander is the secretary of the board. Its members are comprised of directorates and organizations from across the installation.

Processes and aspects as well as significant aspects are revisited annually for modifications, corrections and SME approval.  The significant aspects are presented to Senior Leadership for approval at the EQCC.

From this policy we have created an acronym and logo that communicates our policy to all individuals on the installation and makes the policy easy to remember. Our Environmental Management System will help us make this goal a reality.
