10/7/2009 - MCCHORD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. - Master Sgt. Dwayne Lee, 446th Civil Engineer Squadron here, points to a smoke detector he helped install in a water control substation at McChord on Oct. 4. Sergeant Lee and his team of Air Force Reserve engineers retrofitted the decades-old building in just five days with an extensive list of modern fire protection equipment during their annual tour in August. The improvements included installation of approximately 400 feet of conduit piping, 800 feet of electrical wire, 15 tamper control modules, three smoke detectors, two fire alarm pull stations with horn strobes, and a fire alarm control panel. "This was a great experience for building rapport between the 446th CES and our active-duty counterparts in the 62nd CES," said Sergeant Lee. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Grant Saylor)
