Family Housing Winter Tips


Ramstein and surrounding areas are subject to severe winter weather and temperatures. You can prevent unnecessary damage(s)/vehicle accidents by keeping these procedures in mind:

Remove water hoses from outside water faucets whenever the outside temperature is expected to fall below 35 degrees Fahrenheit or 1.6 degrees Celsius.

Secure all items in your yard during high winds. If you have an outdoor storage shed, ensure that the storage shed doors are locked to avoid potential wind damage.

Whether living on or off-base, ensure that you close your home’s Rolladens (rolling shutters) when high winds occur or when a high wind warning has been issued.

If you have power or heating problems in your quarters/home, you can call the Housing Maintenance Contractor (Vectrus, commercial: 06371-4639510). If you live off-base, immediately contact your Landlord.

During periods of inclement weather, please call ahead to the location you are visiting as frequent changes may occur. For the local/current road conditions, visit the Ramstein Air Base Official Facebook page at
