The Shopette at that intersection will be closed for 8 hours as part of the exercise.

Areas south of Sheridan Road and west of Fort Sill Boulevard may experience power outages during the exercise. The Buffalo Soldier Acres housing area will not be affected. All other facilities will continue normal operations while dealing with the emergency exercise.

The time frame of the exercise should not interfere with school buses.

The disaster exercise is an annual requirement and every department involved in the exercise will be evaluated and graded.
