First responders and support agencies here participated in an emergency management exercise Aug. 26.

The exercise involved various scenarios that replicated possible real-world events and was designed to enhance training and readiness of Andersen Air Force Base emergency responders during threats to the installation and units.

"Emergency management exercises are vitally important to Team Andersen to ensure we are prepared to respond to any scenario that may arise," said Lt. Col. Driller Fiegel, 36th Wing Inspector General. "The exercise is meant to prepare us for potential incidents including aircraft malfunctions, injured personnel, attacks on base and a number of other incidents."

The event was part of regularly scheduled evaluations of base preparedness.
