The driving class, held Oct. 1 by members of the 403rd Civil Engineers Squadron emergency management team, was designed to test the ability of wing members to operate vehicles while donning portions of their MOPP gear during a simulated chemical warfare environment. The class was part of the wing's preparation for the Operational Readiness Inspection in January 2012.
