184th INTELLIGENCE WING TO SUPPORT FIRST RESPONDER EXERCISE

 

Approximately 300 Airmen from the 184th Intelligence Wing, Kansas Air

National Guard, will take part in a first responder exercise June 7-10, in

Cheney, Kansas. During the exercise, titled Servant Guardian, the Airmen

will deploy assets available to our state for response to man-made or

natural disasters.

 

The 184th IW is partnering with the community of Cheney for this exercise.

Kansas Airmen will be demonstrating how they can support local first

responders as they react to a simulated chemical spill, debris removal and

other disaster training scenarios.

 

"We are very excited to be working with the city of Cheney and the Sedgwick

County Fair Grounds," said Col. Joe Jabara, wing commander, 184th IW.

"Anytime we can partner with communities for disaster exercises such as

this, our capabilities and response improve."

 

"Disasters can happen anytime and anywhere, when they do, the Kansas Air

National Guard will be ready to respond," said Brig. Gen. David Weishaar,

assistant adjutant general, commander Kansas Air National Guard. "These

types of exercises prepare us to help the citizens of Kansas during those

disasters."
