Special Notice: Security Exercises at Naval Weapons Station


Security Exercises at Naval Weapons Station

Good afternoon.  Starting tomorrow and running through February 12, base personnel will be taking part in a series of nationwide security exercises

The exercises, collectively called Citadel Shield-Solid Curtain 2021, will be conducted on Navy bases throughout the continental United States.  At the naval weapons station, drills and training will be conducted on a wide range of potential security scenarios.

The exercises may cause increased law enforcement activity and other traffic around the weapons station, delays in base access, and temporary gate closures.  The station’s “Giant Voice” mass notification loudspeaker system may also be used.  Civilian boat traffic through Anaheim Bay and the new public boating channel is unlikely to be affected.

The drills are not in response to any specific threat, but are part of a regularly scheduled annual exercise, developed to enhance the training and readiness of Navy security teams.

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

Please let me know if anyone has any questions.
