Emergency officials responded to a possible security incident at the Travis Air Force Base Wednesday and determined it to be a false alarm.

Authorities say there were reports of potential gunshots near the supply warehouse and personnel responded immediately to ensure safety. 

The 60th Air Mobility Wing is in the middle of a two-day training on responding to emergency incidents. 

"These exercises mean everyone on base is on heightened awareness," said Col. Jeffrey Nelson, 60th AMW commander.  "Though it was a false alarm, our first responders reacted quickly and appropriately. We take every security incident, very seriously.  I am confident in our ability to respond to any emergency situation."

An initial Facebook post from the base account said, "Travis Air Force Base emergency officials are responding to a possible real world security incident that occurred during a scheduled exercise."
