FORT CHAFFEE -- The National Guard unveiled its new $26 million training facility at Fort Chaffee on Wednesday.

The Guard showed off the new facility with a live demonstration training by military units and the Fort Smith SWAT Team. In the demonstration the teams were trained to respond to a school shooter situation, including someone trapped and injured on a top floor of a municipal building.

The training facility includes mock versions of a school, police station, municipal building and even a religious building - all wired with over one hundred and thirty cameras for play back.
