Fort Hood Installation Operation Center will be conducting installation-wide tests of the mass warning and notification system on Wednesday at 10 a.m. 

During one of the tests, a loud siren-like sound followed by a text message will be broadcast three times. 

All text messages will read: "This is only a test. If this had been an actual emergency, additional instructions would be broadcast. This is only a test."

Air Force F-16s from the 457th Fighter Squadron, 301st Fighter Wing, Dallas/Fort Worth, are conducting live munitions release training now through Friday with assistance from Fort Hood's 11th Air Support Operations Squadron.
