West Virginia Army National Guard dedicating new, $18 million Moorefield Readiness Center


MOOREFIELD, West Virginia — The West Virginia Army National Guard is set to dedicate a new training hub in Moorefield.

Officials are scheduled to dedicate the new $18 million Moorefield Readiness Center in Hardy County on Thursday.

The 57,000 square-foot facility is the new home for the 157th Military Police unit and will be the hub for the Guard's training activities. The center also will house the Hardy County Emergency Operations Center.

Officials say the facility will provide the Guard and other state agencies the capability to efficiently and effectively respond to emergencies in the eastern panhandle.

West Virginia adjutant general Maj. Gen. James Hoyer is scheduled to speak at the dedication and will be joined by other community leaders.
