FORT RILEY — A full-scale exercise is scheduled for July 11 at Fort Riley. 

During the day, residents, employees and community members may see an increase in emergency response vehicle activity.  

Additionally, certain roads on the installation may be temporarily closed and traffic could be rerouted to accomidate exercise activity. 

Grant Gate access control point is also going to have periods of closure due to exercise activity. 

Specific times of the closures are not known, however. 

Drivers are asked to be patient and allow extra time when traveling on post.  

The exercise is a way to test and train installation emergency preparedness. 

The annual exercise involves Fort Riley assets and some of our community partners throughout the region. 

It will allow each responding agency to test, evaluate and improve emergency response processes and procedures.
