Navy to conduct security exercise

PORT HADLOCK — Naval Magazine Indian Island will conduct a security training exercise beginning Thursday morning into early afternoon.

The exercise will be on the water outside the ammunition pier’s port security barrier and outside the installation’s main gate.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., residents living in the communities near Indian Island might see an increased presence of harbor security boats in the water and bright blue flashing lights, and hear loud sirens.

Additional security personnel will be around the main gate for a portion of the exercise and during such time there will be loud noises such as yelling, whistles and sirens.

The public is urged to avoid the training areas during the exercise.

The Navy said this is a routine exercise to ensure readiness and to verify response procedures.
