Trivia, Holidays and Horoscope
July 19th Holidays
- Flight Attendant Safety Professionals’ Day
This was proclaimed by George Bush in 1990:
“Flight attendants strive to make air travel as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Their chief responsibility, however, is to guard the safety of aircraft passengers. Federal aviation regulations entrust flight attendants with an array of duties that are essential to protecting cabin occupants from in-flight hazards and to ensuring their safe evacuation in the event of an emergency.
The men and women who serve as flight attendants carry out their duties with an outstanding degree of dedication. Their behavior has been calm and professional during accidents, hijackings, in-flight fires, sudden cabin decompression, and other situations of potential or immediate danger to human life. This tradition of professionalism has saved many passengers from injury or death and continues to increase the margin of safety for those who travel the airways today.
In recognition of the contributions America’s flight attendants have made, and continue to make, to the safety and comfort of the traveling public, the Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 278, has designated July 19, 1990, as “Flight Attendant Safety Professionals’ Day” and has authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of that day.“
