Naval Station Everett will be conducting a security training exercise on Tuesday, Oct. 22, from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. at its main Everett base.
Gates will be closed briefly for 10-minute intervals. The exercise will include mass warning notifications on outdoor speakers, an increased presence of security and small boats in the harbor, and the use of blank rounds to simulate gunfire.
The Navy regularly conducts training exercises to maintain and improve security and emergency response qualifications. These exercises help prepare for a potential real emergency.
They will also provide valuable training opportunities for coordination between Navy personnel and mutual aid partners in local law enforcement.
