Evacuations Required at Air Force Base After Truck Sets Off Alert

Parts of Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts were evacuated Thursday after a truck approached the base’s gate carrying what was believed to be potentially explosive material.

Massachusetts State Police said in a statement they were notified of the incident at about 9:45 a.m.

“A standard screening of the truck and its cargo revealed indicators of potentially hazardous material,” state police said. A Hanscom statement called the material “potentially explosive.”

“Explosive materials experts are on the scene, and until the situation has been fully resolved, the base will continue to take all necessary precautions,” Hanscom said in the statement.

Part of the base near the gate, where the truck remained parked, were evacuated.

The FBI has also been called in for assistance.

State police closed the exit from Route 2A to Hanscom, which is located about 20 miles from Boston.

The base put a response team in place, closed the gate and evacuated several nearby base facilities.

No injuries have been reported.

Big Foot Moving and Storage CEO Mike Bavuso said the truck contained “household goods” that were being delivered to the base.

Bavuso said it is unknown what triggered the response and said his company is working with authorities.

Hanscom Air Force Base, which is largely devoted to research and testing of communications and combat support systems, has three main divisions: Command, Control, Communications, Intelligence and Networks (C3I&N); Battle Management; and Nuclear Command, Control and Communications. About 10,000 people live or work at the base.

The base is located next to Hanscom Field, an airport that primarily serves commuter air traffic. Hanscom Field was not impacted by Thursday’s incident.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said he was briefed on the incident.
