The exercise will start at 9am and should finish about 1pm.
Residents and motorists should not be concerned by any large contingency of emergency service staff or vehicles at Burnett Heads.
Some motorists and pedestrians in the Burnett Heads area, particularly near the Port of Bundaberg, may encounter minor delays or detours on the Thursday morning as part of this important exercise.
