FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) -- The 1st Infantry Division has been honored for taking steps to improve the safety of soldiers living and training at Fort Riley and three other posts.

The Army Combat Readiness/Safety Center selected the division, headquartered at Fort Riley, for the Exceptional Organization Safety Award.

Division leaders tracked accidents at Fort Riley as well as Fort Knox, Ky.; Fort Sill, Okla.; and Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. The goal was to identify the causes and adopt measures to reduce the risks of future incidents, including vehicle and motorcycle accidents.

Fort Riley safety manager Richard Hearron said soldiers were encouraged to report incidents of unsafe behavior to their superiors.
