A first responder treats burns on a victim of a lighting strike during a base-wide exercise Aug. 29. During the lightning strike scenario there were multiple injuries that tested the base’s ability to respond to a large scale emergency. The Condor Crest emergency response exercise was held Aug. 26-30 as part of the 21st Space Wing’s continued commitment to ensure base readiness.

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Peterson Air Force Base members will conduct emergency response exercises Oct. 22 to 26 as part of the 21st Space Wing’s continued commitment to ensure base readiness. These exercises may cause short delays at all Peterson AFB and Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station gates. There will be some traffic disruption and potentially some temporary delays in services in the areas where exercise scenarios are taking place. We ask our mission partners and community members for their patience. These exercises provide vital evaluations of our Peterson AFB emergency plans and ensure emergency response forces are able to effectively manage unplanned crisis events.
