Equipment Concentration Site Keeps Army Reserve Rolling Along
When the Army Reserve Soldiers come to train at Fort Hunter Liggett, California, they don’t always bring their own equipment. The Equipment Concentration Site 170 (ECS 170) has the unique task of storing and maintaining equipment of all sorts for around 200 units across the U.S. that train here. Units who store their equipment with ECS 170 know it can be used by any other Reserve unit if needed, saving the Army the cost of shipping rolling stock and other equipment. Matt Rado, ECS 170 manager, said more than 5,000 pieces of Army Reserve equipment are on site. “Every major exercise that happens on Fort Hunter Liggett, ECS provides 25 to 50 percent of all that equipment.”
