Army Sets Up Training Camp In Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- Liberty Christian school in Richland looks more like an army base this week.

Big army trucks and vehicles are parked at the school where you might normally see school buses and children playing. This week National Guard, Army and Air Guard soldiers are training as part of a large initiative the group does annually. Each day different drills are run and lessons are exchanged between soldiers.

Today there were some members of the guard practicing different first aid techniques and procedures. The training is taking place in multiple locations including the Hammer Training Center in Richland. Later in the week Governor Inslee is scheduled to stop by

On Wednesday they'll be performing a nuclear event using volunteers from the public to conduct a drill near Hanford. NBC Right Now will have more on these procedures throughout the week.
