City staff trains for emergencies to help reduce impacts and speed recovery.

The City of Killeen will participate in an emergency response training exercise May 7 along with Fort Hood, American Airlines and American Red Cross. The public is advised that this is a simulated emergency event and poses no public threat.

Emergency response measures will be primarily conducted on West Fort Hood. Installation and community first responders will react to the emergency simulation, and the public may observe emergency lights and sirens, smoke, sound, visual effects and various role-players.

The City of Killeen Office of Emergency Management coordinates citywide response to large-scale emergencies and disasters. In advance of emergencies, the office works to educate the public, connect resources and train personnel. Preparedness can help reduce the impacts of emergency events and speed recovery efforts.
