BLUEBELL

The dispersion of RCEME expertise across all environments of the CAF in all geographical regions of Canada causes some unique challenges with respect to the application of consistent Land Equipment Management System (LEMS) policy and practises to sustain domestic and deployed operations. Exercise (Ex) BLUEBELL strongly reinforces LEMS consistency through the sharing of ideas from all environments and from the holistic LEMS family in order to empower LEMS effectiveness.

2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has imposed restrictions on travelling and gathering in large groups, which greatly limit the traditional delivery of this exercise. Although, it is possible to use virtual means to replace in-person interaction. The Corps will continuously update directives in consideration to the newest regional or inter-provincial regulations in order to execute Ex BLUEBELL with success.

Here are the initial Ex Bluebell Instructions, but please refer to this standalone Ex Bluebell Frag O 001 for the actual details of the event.
