Dover Air Force Base will conduct a base-wide force protection exercise Oct. 6-8, 2021.

The exercise will entail 24-hour operations and consist of an array of scenarios testing the base’s ability to respond and mobilize, satisfying annual training requirements.

The purpose of this exercise is to evaluate the ability of units to respond to emergencies and elevated force protection levels.

As part of the exercise, gate closures and delays can be expected as force protection conditions fluctuate. Also, commonly accessed facilities will see limited access and sporadic outages.
