Canadian Army Reserve personnel will be conducting convoy training in the Windsor-Essex, and Chatham-Kent areas this Saturday and Sunday.

Activities will include convoy drills on planned routes and around Cedar Springs Rifle Range (CSRR) at 8500 Water Street in Cedar Springs.

All activities will happen throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday. Officials say members of the public may see military vehicles on Highway 401, E.C. Row, Highway 3, and throughout Windsor-Essex and surrounding areas including Chatham and Leamington.

Participating soldiers will remain within vehicles, except for any required maintenance, and will carry unloaded personal weapons with no ammunition issued.

Officials say this important training is being conducted in order to maintain and further develop the skills of  Canadian Army Reserve soldiers in convoy operations, and to test discipline, safety and effectiveness while operating specific vehicle platforms.

Members of the public are asked to take extra caution when approaching military vehicles.
