Inclement Weather Plan
  • In the event of inclement weather the ceremony will be relocated to an Airmen Training Complex (dormitories). 
  • The announcement will be made at approximately 5:30 a.m. on the BMT Facebook page and this website.
  • Due to size and space limitations of the dormitories, visitors WILL NOT be allowed to attend the ceremony in person if relocated. The ceremony will be live-streamed on the BMT Facebook page.
  • Once the ceremony is complete and the inclement weather passes, graduates will march to the Pfingston Reception Center to meet their visitors.

*Please make sure you stay tuned to this website and the BMT Facebook page for announcements.  The safety of our trainees and their families is our first priority.
