The 97th Air Mobility Wing will be conducting active shooter response training at Rivers Elementary School on 14 August 2018.
Base gates will be closed for a short time during this period. Base personnel, residents and visitors may also hear simulated gun fire sounds from around the school during the hours of 8:00 am through 12:00 pm.
Exercises of this nature are critical for evaluating Department of Defense response actions to a lockdown incident and to prepare for this in the most realistic manner. Base personnel have been and will continue to be intently focused on improving response plans for the safety of everyone on the installation.
Please direct any questions to 97th AMW Public Affairs at (580) 481-7700.
