Exercise involves NAS Whiting

NAVAL AIR STATION WHITING FIELD, Fla. -- NAS Whiting Field along with naval installations across the country will participate in Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2018 (CS/SC) Jan. 29 – Feb. 9. The two-part, linked anti-terrorism force protection exercise is designed to enhance the readiness of Navy security forces and ensure seamless interoperability among the commands, other services and agency partners. Exercise CS/SC 18 is not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly scheduled exercise. Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions within local communities and to normal base operations, but there may be times when the exercise causes increased traffic around bases or delays in base access. Area residents may also see or hear security activities associated with the exercise. Advanced coordination has taken place with local law enforcement and first responders.
