FACILITIES MAINTENANCE PROGRAM 1. Public Works will provide appropriate school training and work directly with unit self-help personnel to provide guidance to maintain and repair your living and working areas. Your unit self-help personnel will be able to use this knowledge to improve your barracks and work areas by being able to accomplish many self-help tasks themselves. 2. Every unit will provide the following support for the unit self help program: a. Send selected personnel who are interested and enthusiastic to the Public Works Self-Help School. Materials from the Public Works Self Help store will only be furnished to unit personnel who have completed the self-help school. b. Provide proper tools for self-help personnel. c. Allow unit self-help personnel to perform self-help maintenance tasks in unit areas a minimum of eight hours a week. d.
