Full scale force protection exercise may delay access to Ft. Huachuca

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  In order to remain prepared for an unexpected emergency event, Fort Huachuca is conducting its annual Antiterrorism and Force Protection Full-Scale Exercise on Wednesday, August 27. 

Visitors and personnel on or near Ft. Huachuca may notice an increase in security measures on the post, especially at the base gates, as it participates in the annual exercise. 

According to Ft. Huachuca officials the purpose of the exercise is to identify strengths and weaknesses in providing security for residents and personnel on the base.  This training will enable leaders to evaluate skills necessary to respond to threats or emergencies, said base officials, with or without warning.  

Residents and base personnel should expect traffic delays and everyone is asked to plan accordingly and give full cooperation.  

Updated exercise information will be posted on Channel 97 (the Commander's Access Channel), the U.S. Army Fort Huachuca Facebook page and the Critical Information hotline 538-4636.
