The Wisconsin National Guard Reaction Force (NGRF) will partner with the Waukesha Police Department for a full-scale disaster exercise Aug. 28-30.

The NGRF is a rapidly deployable, all-hazards temporary task force which supports local authorities by providing site security, conducting presence patrols, establishing roadblocks and checkpoints, controlling civil disturbances, protecting selected assets, and providing force protection and security for the 54th Civil Support Team or the Wisconsin National Guard’s CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and High Explosive) Enhanced Response Force Package.

The Waukesha Police Department volunteered to host the exercise, which is required to validate the NGRF’s ability to conduct its civil support mission.

In the disaster exercise scenario, downtown Waukesha is devastated by an F5 tornado, requiring a mass casualty response. This coordinated effort will involve trained volunteers, area hospitals, all levels of emergency management and the Wisconsin National Guard.

During the exercise, local residents should expect to see military vehicles, equipment and personnel in and around the Waukesha County Expo area. Additionally, some roads in downtown Waukesha will be reduced to one lane, and the public should expect some brief delays around the center of the city as well as the Expo grounds.
