Fire and electrical incidents in Iraq were at an all-time high in the summer of 2008, killing 19 people on MNF-I bases across the Iraq Joint Operations Area IJOA. As a result, Multi-National ForcesIraq MNF-I activated the Task Force Safety Actions for Fire and Electricity TF SAFE program in August 2008. TF SAFEs 3-year mission was to protect the force against fire and electrical hazards in the environment we control inside the wire on our Contingency Operating Bases, Locations, and Sites. Under the direction of the MNF-I J4, Multi-National Corps-Iraq MNC-I C7, and later the USF-I J7, TF SAFE deactivated on Nov. 12, 2011 combined the efforts of Service members, DoD civilians, and contractors from MNF-I, MNC-I, USF-I, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers USACE, and the Defense Contract Management Agency DCMA to combat the threat of fire and electrical hazards.
