YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan -- The 374th Security Forces Squadron participated in an active shooter exercise to practice readiness training in the event of a live incident at the Yokota Passenger Terminal on Jan. 10, 2023.

“These exercises help our first responders practice readiness and to discover where we need to do better," said Col. Andrew Roddan, 374th Airlift Wing Commander. “We need to find out the things we struggle with so we can learn from it and share that with others.”

First responders have an important job of protecting the personnel and assets of the installation. It is important that we keep that safety and security of our base a priority by sharpening our skills regularly.
