Joint Base Lewis-McChord will hold a major internal security exercise Wednesday, Dec. 12.

The goal of the exercise is to ensure base leadership and first responders are prepared to respond to a variety of security threats and able to protect personnel, resources, and property.

During the exercise people working, conducting business, or visiting JBLM should anticipate detours in vehicle traffic patterns, restricted access to some buildings and possible disruption to various customer service activities.

JBLM officials and exercise planners have developed the exercise scenario to ensure response actions do not impede traffic along Interstate 5.

During the exercise people can receive updates to buildings, roadways, and services impacted by the exercise by logging on to the JBLM Facebook page by clicking here.

For questions about the exercise, call the JBLM public affairs office at 253-967-0152 or 253-967-0148.
