TOP STORY >> Exercise tests base’s procedures, resolve

By 19th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Team Little Rock members tested the base’s Antiterrorism response procedures Aug. 26, 2015.

The base exercised progression through FPCON levels, Shelter-In-Place Procedures, and Patient Decontamination at the 19th Medical Group.  

Specifically, the teams responded to a domestic terrorist and chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats.

“As a key element of the Air Force Inspection System’s (AFIS) continual evaluation process, a small team of AMC/IG professionals were on-site for a mid-point visit to observe the 19th AW Commander’s Inspection Program (CCIP) in action and provide important mentorship to the Wing’s IGI team,” said  Maj. Jason Baker, 19th AW Director of Inspections.

 These exercises are vital to testing processes and capabilities to ensure the base can continue operations in a hazardous environment with minimal to no loss of personnel or resources.

“What they found was a completely integrated Team Little Rock Wing Inspection Team (WIT) effort and invaluable inter-command partnerships at all levels--both of which are crucial to our installation’s defense and continued excellence,” Baker said.
