The 502nd Air Base Wing will conduct a JBSA-wide Antiterrorism/Force Protection Condition, or AT/FPCON, exercise July 20-27 during duty hours, but not including the weekend.

The primary objectives of the exercise are to evaluate and assess Team JBSA’s Disaster Response Forces ability to respond to acts of terrorism and the ability of JBSA to transition to higher FPCONs.

  • Temporary blockage of some roads 
  • Increased security measures, “Giant Voice” and AtHoc messaging 
  • Use of telephone and electronic-notification methods
