Traffic could be slower than normal around Robins Air Force Base this week.

The military says exercises are beginning Monday to test readiness and emergency response at the central Georgia installation. Officials will evaluate the base's response to natural and manmade threats.

A news release says there may be delays entering and exiting the base because of the drill. Services might also be scaled-back at some locations because of restricted access.

The exercise ends Thursday.

Robins is home to a materiel command that manages aircraft, engines, missiles and other equipment worldwide. It has about 23,000 civilian employees.
