FORT DRUM — A mass casualty exercise on post Thursday will require traffic detours and is expected to cause congestion and delays around Wheeler-Sack Army Airfield, the post said Tuesday.

The exercise will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and will involve local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and other first responders in a fictional active-shooter scenario.

During such training events, post officials said, it is not unusual for people who work on the post and airfield to face additional security checks, longer lines at the gate and disruptions to daily activities.
