Power outage set for March 15

In mid-March, Fort Hood will conduct an Energy Resilience Readiness Exercise in order to test the post’s emergency systems and allow the gathering of data on the installation’s energy infrastructure.

The exercise is planned for March 15-18, but Tuesday, March 15, is the date Fort Hood officials want the community to remember. On that day, a full-scale ERRE will effectively cut electrical power to nearly the entire installation, starting at 8 a.m. The power outage will last at least eight hours, not to exceed 12 hours. Neither Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center nor Robert Gray Army Airfield will be effected by this exercise/power outage.

In the coming weeks leading up to the exercise, Fort Hood officials will provide information vital for the safety and security of the Fort Hood community in order to prepare for the power outage, and to mitigate any issues arising from the loss of electricity during the exercise.
