The Housing Hype — April 26, 2019

Attention KMC Residents 

As we approach the peak season for permanent change of station, the Furnishings Management Section (FMS) would like to help make your transition go as smooth as possible. We HIGHLY ENCOURAGE all personnel to schedule furniture to be picked-up as soon as possible. Our team has already begun to make appointments for the month of May, so time is of the essence. Upon scheduling your pick-up and/or if you require loaner/temporary furniture, you can submit a request. Military/PCS orders are not required to make appointments. However, prior to your scheduled pick-up/delivery date, PCS orders are required. If you have any questions, or require additional information, please feel free to contact the FMS Team at DSN 489-6018 or 6153 (Commercial 0631-536-6018 or 6153), or email

Upcoming Office Closures

The KMC Housing Office and Furnishings Management Section will be closed on April 19 and 22 in observance of German Holidays.

Point of contact is Mrs. Mauri Isaac, Chief, Furnishings Management Section, at DSN 489-7188.


Annual fire hydrant flow tests are scheduled for April 29 – May 10 for Ramstein Military Family Housing and May 10 – June 21 for the remainder of the installation.

Fire hydrants will be opened water will be visible on streets and landscaping.

Flow testing may cause rare cases of rust particles to become dislodged within water pipes. This is not a health concern; however residents and facility occupants should run water faucets until the water runs clear. In housing and lodging facilities, run washing machines through a rinse cycle to ensure rust particles do not stain laundry.
