If you hear of any alarming incidents at the Air Force Academy Friday, don't panic.

The Academy is continuing the basewide readiness exercise begun Thursday, which have already resulted in area residents hearing and seeing strange things, such as sirens and smoke.

The Academy said in a release prior to the exercise that artificial smoke could possibly be seen on the base. After receiving calls from viewers Thursday concerned over reports of a lockdown within the cadet area, a spokesman with the Academy elaborated that the lockdown was also part of the exercise.

The exercise could also cause delays at both gates Friday.

The Academy wants Springs residents to know that the exercises are planned and controlled.
