Exercise at Maxwell AFB causes commotion

MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE (WSFA) -  An "active shooter" exercise by base emergency response teams at Maxwell Air Force Base and Gunter Annex may have caused some delays at the gates this morning.

Military bases conduct active shooter exercises to monitor base personnel and emergency response teams' ability to react to reports of a gunman on the installation.

Base officials are asking people who have business on Maxwell or Gunter to plan accordingly and exercise patience.

Maxwell and Gunter hold periodic exercises to ensure base personnel are prepared to respond in cases of natural disasters, accidents, and other emergencies.
