Cannon to conduct exercises

CNJ staff

Starting Saturday, Cannon Air Force Base will conduct an operational readiness.

Residents on or near the base many notice increased activity and use of the public address system. Sirens and/or simulated explosions may also be heard.

Cannon’s public affairs office said these types of exercises are vital to honing the skills of its airmen under simulated wartime conditions.

Anyone living on or visiting the base should note that traffic delays, closures or limited services may occur.
