FORT SILL, Okla. (KSWO) - Fort Sill has many events happening this week, including an active shooter training, a haunted house, zombie 5k, and more.

7News spoke with Virginia Aid, the Community Relations Liaison, about those upcoming events and what they’ll entail.

An active shooter training will occur around noon on Thursday, October 20, on Fort Sill. The community can expect an influx of different agencies on post, so please don’t be alarmed.

On Saturday, October 22, a multitude of events will take place in addition to the Basement of Terror. Beginning at 10:30 a.m., the Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum will have a Revolutionary War Uniforms and Weapons demonstration, where participants will be able to hold and be shown how to fire revolutionary war weaponry.

From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Patriot Club on Fort Sill, there will be a free movie marathon showing the films The Black Phone and Nope. Popcorn will be included for free.
