City issues military training exercise notice

April 16, 2013

NEW ORLEANS, LA--Today, the City of New Orleans issued a notice of a military training exercise to New Orleans residents. 

Local and federal law enforcement agencies are providing support for a pre-planned joint military training exercise in and around the greater New Orleans area.  The training exercise includes the use of military helicopters throughout the week .

The training was coordinated with local authorities and owners of the training sites.  The training sites and times were carefully selected to minimize negative impact for the citizens of New Orleans and their daily routines.

Safety precautions have been taken to prevent risk to the general public and the personnel involved.  As such, this training is not open to the public and the specific training locations will not be disclosed.  

Uniformed personnel are on-site for the training to provide additional public safety measures in keeping citizens safe.

Throughout the month of April, the U.S. Department of Defense will be conducting a series of Homeland Security exercises across the city.
