Alaska Shield/Northern Edge 2005 is the largest homeland defense/homeland security exercise ever conducted in Alaska. The exercise is the first opportunity within the state to exercise an integrated local, state and federal government response to a series of simulated emergencies including natural disasters, terrorist attacks and mass casualty scenarios.
