Travis AFB Conducts Preparedness Exercise

SUISUN CITY - Travis Air Force Base is conducting an ongoing, around-the-clock training exercise through Friday night designed to prepare airmen for deployment operations.

Travis officials notified Suisun City that the training will include firearms simulators, explosions, smoke grenades and amplified voice commands during both day and nighttime hours. These will primarily be used Wednesday Nov. 3 through Friday Nov. 5.

Residents of Suisun City, particularly those near Travis Air Force Base boundaries, may see or hear portions of this military exercise, particularly during nighttime hours when sound tends to carry further. It is only a training exercise necessary to prepare airmen for deployment.

Travis officials issued the notification to prevent panic or anxiety from members of the community unaware of the exercise.

If you have any questions or concerns about this exercise, contact the Travis AFB Public Affairs Office at 707-424-2011.
