(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Training is underway at the 139th Airlift Wing in St. Joseph.

About 800 airmen are gearing up for inspections later this year.

"State of emergency, bad severe weather, earthquake. Any type of natural disaster, we would be ready to go," said Major Eric Rawlings.

Members are practicing what would happen in the event of an emergency.

"Make sure that we can process our individuals, and cargo, and deploy them anywhere around the world whenever called upon to do so," said Major Rawlings.
The training will last a week.
