FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - For one day next week, the training at Fort Campbell will include preparing for a weather emergency.

The Army post along the Kentucky-Tennessee border says a weather-related emergency response exercise is set for June 2. Fort Campbell says it is partnering with off-post emergency services to practice how the post would respond to a real-life tornado touchdown.

Fort Campbell officials say such full-scale exercises are done every year and are used to evaluate the post’s ability to respond to extreme emergency situations. In past years the focus has been on anti-terrorism and active shooter scenarios. This year, the focus has shifted to a tornado touchdown.
