Purpose and Need for the Proposed Action The United States U.S. Air Force USAF proposes the construction of facilities in support of the SF Apprentice Course on a 17-acre site at JBSA-Camp Bullis. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to increase the number of SF Apprentice Course students residing and training at JBSA-Camp Bullis at any one time from approximately 480 to 600 students. There are currently four teams totaling approximately 480 students that train at JBSA-Camp Bullis. However, due to dormitory constraints, only three teams totaling approximately 360 students actually reside at JBSA-Camp Bullis. The remaining training team, approximately 120 students, is required to travel tofrom JBSA-Lackland and JBSA-Camp Bullis. The Proposed Action is needed to update the SF Apprentice Course. Current needs of the career field demand better trained SF members in response to current world threats. This can be achieved by training in an enhanced deployment environment, which ensures greater training realism. Additionally, it would provide SF Apprentice Course training with the capability of future expansion and training needs at JBSA-Camp Bullis. The project would result in improved student living conditions, since currently there is forced triple bunking in the lone dormitory and use of overflow hutments. In addition, the anticipated final state for the SF Apprentice Course includes an additional training team, approximately 120 students, to train and reside at JBSACamp Bullis, for a total of 600 students training and residing at JBSA-Camp Bullis.
