Oct 20, 2020

Don’t be alarmed if you hear the sound of explosions and gunfire coming from Naval Air Station Jacksonville over the next few days.

The Navy says the simulated noises are part of a training exercise at the base hospital that’s designed to help medical professionals perform their jobs under battlefield conditions.

The exercise is scheduled from 7.am. until 2 p.m. Wednesday through Friday.
