The public may notice a few more soldiers around Red Deer this weekend with a military training exercise scheduled.

Approximately 35 members of 41 Canadian Brigade Group (41 CBG) will conduct a military training exercise in Red Deer from Friday to Sunday, Capt. Brad Young said in a release.

Starting on Friday, 41 CBG personnel will travel to various locations in the city to meet with local civil authorities to practise basic information gathering skills used in the preparation of civil-military area assessments.

All military participants will be dressed in Canadian Disruptive Pattern uniform and soldiers will not be carrying weapons during the training exercise.

The training exercise is to provide 41 CBG personnel with an opportunity to develop and maintain basic Civil-Military Co-operation reporting skills used during domestic and expeditionary operations.

The movement of Canadian Forces personnel will not pose a significant disturbance to the community and participants will at no time trespass on private property.
