Hanscom Air Force Base has altered the Town to an upcoming base-wide exercise to evaluate their readiness and emergency response. The exercise will begin Wednesday, June 23 and is scheduled to run thru the following day, Thursday, June 24.
A number of scenarios are planned, some of which may result in traffic delays near base entry points at various times during those two days. We understand that these delays can be disruptive, but we expect less disruption than in the past because much of our workforce is still teleworking.
We apologize for any inconvenience and ask for your patience and understanding as we carry out this vital training that allows us to evaluate our readiness for emergency response situations.
