TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. – Travis Air Force Base will conduct a readiness exercise Oct. 13 – 20, 2023.
Exercises fine-tune and advance Airmen’s readiness and ability to execute and sustain rapid global mobility around the world.

The local populous and surrounding communities will hear an increase in air traffic, voice notifications and alarms. Additionally, patrons may experience increased gate entry wait periods.

All base exercise notifications heard over the installation’s Giant Voice system will be prefaced with an “Exercise Exercise Exercise” reminder. Sirens and alarms heard from the base are used to simulate a realistic environment in which base personnel can properly train and respond in the event of a real-world incident.

From Oct. 17 – 19, routine medical services at David Grant USAF Medical Center may be impacted. The BX pharmacy, radiology and the laboratory will be closed. Acute care and emergency services will remain open.
