Squadrons swap expertise in exercise

Staff Sgt. Scott Emmick, 56th Security Forces Squadron military working dog handler, and his dog, Roy, 56th SFS MWD, check a fuel vehicle for explosives during the training exercise. The exercise helped improve response time and gave first responders a look at the potential emergencies and disasters based on a real-world event.

Members of the 56th Security Forces Squadron conducted an exercise June 13 with members of the 56th Civil Engineer Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal Flight and 56th Logistics Readiness Squadron. The scenario involved an Airman from the 56th LRS targeting three locations throughout Luke Air Force Base with multiple improvised explosive devices.

The training gave Luke Airmen a chance to work with emergency response personnel from other units.

“We can learn from each other when we train together,” said Jerold Haupt, 56th SFS standardized evaluations chief.

It gave the first responders a look at the potential emergencies and disasters based on a real-world event.

“The objective of the night was to train on responding to a scenario as well as working with EOD to help better our communication,” Haupt said. “K-9 training was conducted as well to prepare our military working dogs for this type of real-world event.”

Teamwork played a major role in the success of the exercise.

“Overall the exercise went well,” said Master Sgt. Garet Vannes, 56th CES EOD member. “This was a great training exercise between the SFS, POL and EOD. Security forces did a great job in planning and executing the exercise.”
