Fort Detrick to Conduct Full-Scale Exercise
U.S. Army Garrison-Fort Detrick officials will conduct its annual full-scale exercise April 17-18 throughout the installation.
This year’s full-scale exercise will evaluate core capabilities pertaining to medical countermeasures in response of a pandemic. Segments will include distribution and dispensing of medical products and testing current plans and procedures for response and recovery.

“Ideally the exercise is designed to stress and evaluate the installation’s planning and response procedures and capabilities with actual response conditions,” said Mary Chizmar, Directorate of Plans, Training, Mobilization and Security.
According to Chizmar, by doing these annual exercises it allows the installation to identify gaps and work out any identified issues before an actual emergency occurs.
It is an annual requirement by the U.S. Army Installation Management Command to test the installation’s emergency procedures. In the past, full-scale exercise scenarios have included highway accidents releasing chemicals, tornadoes and active shooter.
