Barbados will provide logistical and staging support to portions of exercise Fused Response, which is being hosted by Trinidad and Tobago from April 16 to 26. This is the first time Trinidad and Tobago will host the annual multilateral exercise.
Defence, interagency and law enforcement partners from the United States will participate in the exercise. It combines simulated computer-based and hands-on field training. Helicopters and cargo planes will be used to add to the realistic training environment, while supporting the exercise’s objectives.
Fused Response reflects the commitment of participating countries to work collaboratively with security partners in the region, strengthen longstanding ties, build capacity and enhance interoperability among nations.
