Fort Sill to conduct annual disaster training Wednesday

FORT SILL, Okla._If you plan on driving onto Fort Sill Wednesday, officials say you may run into some traffic.

Fort Sill will be holding their annual disaster exercise on Wednesday between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Key Gate and Apache Gate will continue normal operations with random vehicle checks. Every vehicle will be checked at all other gates. Drivers should also avoid the intersection of Mow-Way Road and Sheridan Road during that time. 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.
