Wing readies for base exercise

Airmen apply bandages and a tourniquet to a wounded Airman Nov. 2 during the 21st Space Wing’s Condor Crest exercise on Peterson Air Force Base. Airmen were tested on self aid buddy care, which requires all Airmen to know basic life support and limb-saving techniques to help wounded or injured personnel. In this scenario, Airmen were deployed to “Tereen, Afghanistan” for a chemical war event. The focus of the exercise was to prepare Airmen to deploy into a chemical environment. The wing’s ability to perform deployment operations is among the areas expected to be scrutinized during an upcoming Operational Readiness Inspection conducted by the Air Force Space Command Inspector General.

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Peterson Air Force Base members will conduct emergency response exercises Aug. 26 to 30 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.
