Kansas Military Conducting Weather Exercise

KSAL StaffMarch 3, 2014

Airmen of a Topeka-based Kansas National Guard unit will test their response skills this week to see how they would respond to a severe weather disaster.

The 190th Air Refueling Wing based at Forbes Field will conduct the training exercise Wednesday. The event will involve military personnel as well local and state government agencies and emergency responders.

The scenario will run from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. and simulate how the military staff would respond to a storm that damages structures and equipment on the air base, as well as causes injuries.

The 190th Air Refueling Wing flies KC-135 tankers that conduct aerial refueling operations worldwide.
