Delays Expected Around Peterson AFB


Peterson Air Force Base is doing an emergency response exercise beginning Monday, that will run through Thursday.

There should be some traffic around the base; visitors and employees should expect delays at all entry gates.

This training is to make sure emergency response forces are able to effectively respond to unplanned crisis situations.

    Wow, what close minded people you three are. They are doing "Emergency Response" exercises. Fire Departments across the country do it all the time as a regular part of their training, so why shouldn't the dept. on Pete? They have hundreds of different types buildings as well as multiple types of aircraft to know how to safely respond to. Better they take a week and cause a little slow down than have people die because of lack of training. But then you all just walked into your jobs knowing everything.

    Unplanned crisis situations sounds so much nicer than martial law.

    Yeah, the only thing they can really plan for is the big roundup. World Arena, anybody?

    They must be following Janet Napolitano's instructions to prepare and practice for dealing with a potential evil "Tea Party activists" threat. Seriously folks, Homeland Security thinks Americans are more of a threat than those "other people" around the world who are actually causing all of the mayhem! Maybe it's because we value our freedoms.

    How do you plan for an unplanned crisis?
