Dover Air Force Base will conduct a base-wide exercise Nov. 12-15, 2019.

The exercise will entail 24-hour operations and consist of an array of scenarios testing the base’s ability to respond and mobilize, satisfying multiple annual Inspector General requirements.

As part of the exercise, gate closures and delays can be expected as force protection conditions fluctuate. Also, commonly accessed facilities will see limited access and sporadic outages.

In addition to FPCON changes, the base will participate in a deployment exercise, testing installation units in their ability to rapidly mobilize personnel and cargo for global operations.
