Before ‘don’t forget your PPE’ was a household phrase, it used to indicate that time of the year when we ‘MOPP-up,’ and practice our Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive drills. 

Now, members of the 154th Force Support Squadron (154 FSS) are doing all that and more this week in a Home Station Readiness Training Exercise.

This wartime-readiness exercise is all about preparing Airmen for a rapid deployment, ensuring that members are equipped to aid warfighters and provide relief to those who are affected by natural disasters.  

The training entails familiarization with command and control, resource management, search and recovery ops, setting up of mobile kitchenet structures along with other shelter systems, and much more.

While these Airmen seem to always ‘save the day’ by offering their services throughout each drill weekend, we can only imagine the impact they make when adversity strikes – be it on the home front or downrange. 

No wonder why they say, ‘Force Support or Mission Abort!’
