Got a heads up from Kristin Ching at Naval Station Everett that there will be an exercise involving simulated gunfire and other things that may cause alarm at Naval Station Everett this Thursday.

Here’s what you need to know…

Naval Station Everett will conduct a security exercise on October 15.

Emergency response personnel will exercise procedures for a simulated shooter attack.

Those who usually have base access should expect gate closures during the exercise between 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

Navy security and medical personnel will respond to the simulated attack in coordination with the City of Everett Police Department, according to a joint emergency memorandum of agreement. Other activities will include simulated gun shots, activated emergency vehicles, and use of protective gear.

This field training exercise is designed for Navy and local emergency personnel to improve readiness prior to a real emergency or disaster. Naval Station Everett is committed to working with local community authorities for response and recovery operations in times of crisis.
