Wright-Patt To Test Readiness

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base will be conducting testing of readiness skills in an exercise scheduled this week in southwest Ohio.

Officials with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton say the tests will be conducted Monday through Thursday at the base. Officials said in a release that base visitors and employees may experience gate delays, temporary facility closures and interruptions to certain services.

The release says tightened security could result in delays across the base.

Exercise events will include responses to hazardous material and active shooter scenarios.

The quarterly exercise will test participants' ability to survive and operate during various situations. Officials say it also will provide evaluators the opportunity to assess a unit's transition from peacetime to wartime readiness.
