OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE, Neb. — Officials say neighbors of Offutt Air Force Base should ignore what sounds like an attack.
The Air Force’s 55th Wing will be conducting training exercise Tuesday and Wednesday.
The base sits south of Omaha, adjacent to the suburb of Bellevue.
Officials say members of the public may hear loud noises from ground-burst simulators and see clouds of smoke from smoke grenades.
Sirens will be heard and the base public address system will be used.
Local authorities have been told about the training.
