ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam – Andersen Air Force Base is scheduled to participate in Citadel Pacific, an annual Anti-Terrorism Exercise here, July 31 through Aug. 4.

During Exercise CP17, expect elevated Force Protection Conditions (FPCON), increased ID card checks, increased noise and activity to include sound effects, messages from loud speakers, sirens and noise from alert vehicles. Visual effects such as smoke may also be visible.

This annual exercise is designed to enhance the training, readiness and capability of first responders and Airmen. Exercise CP17 is not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly scheduled exercise. Wing inspection team members will be on scene during base-wide exercise scenarios to ensure public safety. Those visiting Andersen facilities may also experience delays in service.

In the event of a real situation, the exercise will be terminated and the base will be notified. All official notifications will be disseminated through the official Andersen Air Force Base Facebook page, AtHoc notification system and the base loud speakers.
