If you are near Offutt Air Force Base on Wednesday and hear a flurry of activity, don't be alarmed as they will be conducting an active-shooter exercise.
Officials say it is scheduled to be a full-scale emergency response training event with role-player perpetrators. The drill will also include simulated gunfire noises to elicit a response by military security forces, fire department and medical personnel.
The training event will be strictly controlled and include announcements of, “EXERCISE, EXERCISE, EXERCISE,” within the affected exercise area. The exercise is internal to Offutt AFB units and personnel only and response from outside agencies will not be required.
