Military Training Exercise in Bruce & Huron Counties May 3rd to 5th, 2024

Canadian Armed Forces Canadian 31 Brigade Group will be conducting training in Huron and Bruce Counties during their upcoming Exercise Trillium Venture, occurring the weekend of May 3rd to May 5th, 2024.

Members of the public will see the deployment of soldiers, equipment, and vehicles to practice the ability to deploy and sustain in real time. Soldiers will be conducting wellness checks in the Township of Huron-Kinloss, speaking with residents to simulate what would happen if they were asked to check on the well-being of residents during an actual emergency.  

There is no reason for concern regarding this exercise. It is being conducted to create a more challenging, realistic training exercise for soldiers. Soldiers will be conducting fire fighting training, wellness checks, simulated search and rescue operations, establishing cooling centers, as well as other activities. 

All measures are being taken to ensure minimum inconvenience to those in the area. Members of the public are asked to take extra caution if approaching military vehicles and troops and are thanked in advance for their understanding and co-operation.

These exercises are a great way to lead into Emergency Preparedness Week which runs from May 5th to May 11th in 2024. Emergency Preparedness Week is an opportunity for everyone to take action to ensure they are prepared to protect themselves, their families, and their communities during an emergency.
