- Training Facilities
The Adjutant General's Department has a number of training facilities that serve both military and civilian personnel, including law enforcement, fire, search and rescue, emergency medical and other first response and public safety agencies. These facilities allow military and civilian personnel to remain in Kansas rather than expend unnecessary time and money in traveling out of state to receive the training they need.
Crisis City, located eight miles southwest of Salina, Kansas, was developed to fill the need to enhance the state’s capability to defend against terrorism threats and respond to disasters and emergencies.
Smoky Hill Air National Guard Range
Located 10 miles west of Salina, Kansas, the Smoky Hill Air National Guard Range is the largest and busiest ANG bombing range in the nation, encompassing 51 square miles, and has more than 100 Tactical targets and an electronic warfare range. The complex provides approximately 36 thousand acres for combined arms training, allowing Active and Reserve component military organizations to train jointly in a realistic environment that combines ground and air assets in operational training in a way that's possible at only a few sites throughout the United States. The Smoky Hill range provides airspace within an FAA-sanctioned Military Operational Area, which permits active and reserve units to operate both piloted and unmanned aircraft in training scenarios.
