Why Is The FBI Doing Nuclear Training In Texas?

In the News

The FBI has stated that a “large scale, multi-agency nuclear incident training exercise” will be held May 1-5 in Houston, Texas.

“A large-scale, multi-agency nuclear incident TRAINING EXERCISE will take place May 1-5 in southeast Houston and Harris County. The training exercise will NOT pose risks to area residents. Please do not be alarmed by training-related activity,” FBI Houston tweeted.

Why would the FBI need to simulate a “nuclear incident”?

Do they foresee something that the general public does not?


Are they planning a false flag?

Maybe it’s just more Russia scaremongering?

Whatever the cause, it’s something to keep an eye on.


Twitter users responded to the FBI’s announcement:

The media is telling Houston residents not to be alarmed.

According to the FBI, the test will take place “from in and around NRG Park and SH 288 to SH 146 and I-10 east to Highway 225 and in and around Ellington Field.”

Which agencies are involved in the training exercise?

The federal agencies involved will be the Department of Defense, Department of Energy, the National Nuclear Security Administration, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security. As for local agencies, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and Houston Police Department, as well as fire, health and emergency management agencies will be part of the exercise.
