Fort Riley has postponed the planned installation wide power outage, the Black Start exercise, initially planned for Wednesday due to extreme high temperatures and heat indices. Black Start will be rescheduled to a later date.
Fort Riley will hold its annual full-scale exercise Wednesday as planned but won’t include shutting off power to the installation. The annual full-scale exercise tests Fort Riley’s emergency preparedness and provides training for the post and community partners involved.
During the full-scale exercise, Fort Riley residents, employees and community members can expect an increase in emergency traffic on post and multiple emergency notifications, including “Giant Voice” loudspeaker announcements. The Grant Access Control Point will be closed during the exercise.
