Naval training exercises planned next week

PORT HADLOCK — Naval Magazine Indian Island has a series of security training exercises scheduled for next week.

Training activities will be Monday through Thursday, said the Navy in a press release.

Training activities will include boats on the water near the pier’s security barrier and the use of blank ammunition, loud sirens and bright blue flashing lights.

Announcements will be broadcasted from the base’s loudspeaker notification system.

Residents living in the communities surrounding Indian Island and installation personnel could notice increased noise levels and activities associated with the training exercises those days, the Navy said.

The Navy said it conducts these types of security exercises at installations across the world to ensure readiness and verify response procedures.

Naval Magazine Indian Island is home to the U.S. Navy’s only deep-water ammunition port on the West Coast and the Department of Defense’s largest conventional ordnance storage site on the West Coast.

It provides munitions support to Navy, Joint and Allied vessels.
