Moody Tightens Security

Posted: Updated:

Moody Air Force Base near Valdosta is increasing base security as we near the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Below is the press release from the Base:

Officials with the 23rd Wing have increased the Force Protection Condition level of the base to FPCON Bravo as a prudent action heading into 9/11.

The heightened security measures apply to all members of Team Moody to include DoD military and civilian personnel and supporting defense contractors, as well as all persons visiting any facilities on Moody.

Regular visitors to Moody can expect delays at all entry gates, along with random vehicle checks by security forces personnel, as the FPCON levels may increase.

Anyone entering the base should be prepared for 100 percent ID checks and the possibility of showing a second form of identification, if required.

The FPCON system is directed by the Department of Defense to position military facilities against possible threats.

These levels can be adjusted by commanders based on local conditions, specific threat information or guidance from higher headquarters.
