FORT BENNING, Ga. - Installation officials are scheduled to conduct the annual antiterrorism/force protection exercise March 30.

"The purpose of this exercise is to test and train the installation's ability to prevent, detect and defend against natural and manmade crisis and to validate existing plans and policies," said Matt Yaninas of the Installation Force Protection Office.

The exercise will include realistic training in which there will be increased traffic from first responders on Fort Benning. On March 30 personnel on the installation should be prepared for increased police, fire, and rescue activity.

Those arriving on the installation may incur detours, closed roads and traffic delays at entry gates, to include possible gate closures and/or other force-protection measures.

"Thank you in advance for your patience during this important exercise," said Yaninas.
