The moral is be prepared at the drop of a hat. Garrison Petawawa emergency services and personnel were recently put to the test. An annual "no notice" exercise was called at 9:14 Wednesday morning, sending the Garrison into lockdown procedures in response to a threat scenario. A security perimeter was formed by military police and the Garrison Firehall. Some of the 2 Combat Engineer Regiment (2 CER) buildings were put under lockdown in order to appear realistic. Once the lockdown was declared, traffic in and out of the Garrison was stopped, then subjected to emergency procedures. Simulated casualties were triaged by the 4th Canadian Division Support Base Operations Services staff. Garrison Petawawa Commander, Colonel, Louis Lapointe, says overall he was very pleased with how staff responded to the "no notice" emergency exercise.   Garrison Petawawa Formation Sergeant Major, Chief Warrant Officer, Tom Verner saysthat Garrison Petawawa conducts emergency response exercises in order to ensure the ongoing safety of personnel.
