FORT CAVAZOS, Texas — Fort Cavazos emergency response officials will conduct their annual Full-Scale Exercise (FSE) July 11 centered on the theme of wild land fires in the main cantonment area.
The exercise consists of various incident sites; first responders from Fort Cavazos and local law enforcement, fire departments and hospitals will conduct the exercise 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at locations near the Main Post Exchange and Abrams Gym.
Routine traffic on the installation is expected to experience minimal impact. During the exercise, traffic control measures will be implemented in the vicinity of incident sites which may result in short delays. Some of the Comanche housing areas are likely to be affected.
In addition to emergency response vehicles and personnel, visual or audio effects may be observed in the incident area and at local hospitals. Fort Cavazos Soldiers serving as role players may be seen leaving post in emergency vehicles imitating casualties with mock injuries and wounds cosmetically engineered to convey a realistic appearance. Emergency response vehicles will be transporting these Soldiers to area hospital emergency rooms.
In the event of an actual emergency, exercise play will immediately halt, and emergency personnel will respond accordingly.
Media who wish to cover the exercise should register here. Media should meet public affairs representative (254) 499-2740 at 7:00 a.m. July 11 in the south-side parking lot of the Marvin Leath Visitors and Welcome Center.
