Carlisle Barracks announced that it will hold a full-scale exercise Wednesday afternoon that will involve its entire installation and response from local first responders.
The installationwide exercise will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday.
The post said the community should anticipate delays at the gates, closures and interruption to services during this time. The exercise will include a closure of up to an hour of both Claremont and Ashburn gates beginning around noon, according to the post.
The exercise will begin with an alert message over the barracks' emergency mass notification system. The barracks said the exercise is used to validate the systems, processes and reactions needed in the event of a real-world emergency on the installation.
