The exercise was a culmination of months of training and included participants from all activities and units on Naha Military Port as well as the Army on Okinawa Fire Chief, Torii Station Provost Marshal's Office, and the Camp Kinser Marine Corps Base PMO.
The Marine Corps Base Fire Chief, Naha City Fire Department, Japanese Ground Self Defense Force, and Japanese Air Self Defense Force personnel observed the exercise and plan on participating in the future, as they are emergency response options for Naha Military Port.

The exercise aided in enhancing installation awareness and crisis management, as well as strengthening relationships with local national emergency responders.
