The 36th Wing is scheduled to conduct an emergency response exercise on July 28, between 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Andersen AFB.

The exercise will involve multiple training scenarios to prepare service members to respond to emergency situations. Members will be on scene during exercise scenarios to ensure public safety.

Increased noise and activity to include sound effects, simulated gunfire, messages from the Giant Voice system, sirens and noises from emergency vehicles, may be heard. Visual effects such as smoke may also be seen. Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions within the local communities and to normal base operations, but there may be times when the exercise causes increased traffic around base or delays in base access, to include inbound and outbound gate closures.

In the event of a real-world situation the exercise will be terminated and the base will be notified through the official Andersen Air Force Base Facebook page and AtHoc notification system.
