Guam - Guam Homeland Security and the Office of Civil Defense, in conjunction with the Guam National Guard and Alaska National Guard and several of the island's local and federal response agencies, conducted an interagency chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, explosive field training exercise today.

The exercise is called Mane'Lu and is designed to challenge all to maintain operational procedures during an incident of national significance.

Ray Toves, Exercise Director said, "The intent here is to exercise the islands response to weapons of mass destruction. And so far based on the response everything is turning out pretty nice."

Residents are advised that they should not be alarmed at the sudden increase of response vehicles and personnel in the airport, the Dededo GHURA housing, Tiyan and Piti areas as the exercise continues tomorrow.
