N.D. National Guard to Conduct Flood Response Exercise


Members of the North Dakota National Guard will conduct a flood response exercise at Fraine Barracks in Bismarck on Friday, March 6. The National Guard regularly conducts emergency response exercise scenarios to validate and refine statewide plans and capabilities.

About 80 Soldiers and Airmen from the Guard's Domestic Operations Section will work from the organization's Joint Operations Center (JOC) exercising command and control for military response resources during the hypothetical flood response. The JOC serves as a nexus for information sharing, as well as personnel and equipment tracking, during a domestic emergency.
