Advisory

The Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station will take part in the largest Navy security exercise of the year from January 29 through February 9

The event is not in response to any specific threat but is a regularly-scheduled exercise, developed to enhance the training and readiness of Navy security personnel.

Good morning everyone. The Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station will take part in the largest Navy security exercise of the year from January 29 through February 9.

The exercise, called Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2018, will be conducted on naval bases and installations throughout the continental United States. At the naval weapons station, drills and training will be conducted on a wide range of potential security scenarios.

Measures will be taken to avoid disruptions to operations in and around the installation, but there may be times when the exercise causes increased traffic around the weapons station, delays in base access, and gate closures. Area residents may also see increased military and civilian law enforcement activity associated with the exercise.

The station’s “Giant Voice” mass notification loudspeaker system may be used, and civilian boat traffic through Anaheim Bay may be temporarily restricted.

Live updates will be posted on the station’s Facebook page (search under “Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach, Detachment Fallbrook, Detachment Norco”).
