Navy Installations Command Public Affairs
Naval installations within the continental United States (CONUS) are conducting Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2018 (SC-CS18) now through Feb. 9.
SC-CS17 is a two-part, anti-terrorism/force protection exercise conducted by Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces and Commander, Navy Installations Command on all CONUS Navy installations.
This annual exercise is designed to enhance the readiness of Navy security forces and ensure seamless interoperability among the commands, other services, and agency partners. Exercise SC-CS18 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.
