Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2014 will be conducted on naval installations throughout the continental United States, including Naval Magazine Indian Island, through Feb. 28.
The annual exercise is not in response to any specific threat, the Navy said. It is designed to enhance the training and readiness of naval security forces.
There may be times when the exercise causes increased traffic around bases or delays in base access.
Area residents also could see increased security activity and more response vehicles.
The Navy routinely conducts response exercises such as this one to improve coordination, communication and collaboration among Navy personnel who would respond during emergency situations.
For more information, phone NAS Whidbey Island Public Affairs at 360-257-2286.
