U.S. DoD Conducting Pentagon WMD Drill
A large-scale chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear training exercise will be held at the Pentagon today, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. EDT.
The exercise, called "Gallant Fox II," will be staged near the heating and refrigeration plant on the Pentagon Reservation. The purpose of this training event is to enable the Pentagon Force Protection Agency (PFPA), and its federal, state, and local training partners to exercise emergency response units in a duty-day, real world scenario. It will provide valuable training for PFPA to better serve occupants of the Pentagon.
There will not be an evacuation of the Pentagon during the exercise. Only pre-designated workforce employees will conduct an internal assembly as part of the exercise.
