Disasters affect hundreds of thousands of people every year, some with little to no advance warning. It may happen at your local Navy installation. It may happen to you.  While the Navy, emergency management, and first responders are committed to helping those in need; assistance may be delayed during a disaster. As part of the Navy community, you have a role in planning for emergencies -- Be/Stay informed. Make a plan. Build a kit.

CNIC Strengthens Navy Security Forces’ Ability to Respond to Installation Threats

Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces (USFF) and Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) conducted Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2015 Feb. 2-13 on Navy installations located in the continental United States. It is one of the largest force protection exercises conducted across the Department of Defense. From East to West and in between, installations simulated active shooter incidents, some with multiple aggressors. The many moving parts included: implementing lockdown procedures, standing up an emergency operations center, sending out mass notification messages, falling back, hiding in locked offices, and getting first aid to the wounded once Naval Security Forces subdued the “disgruntled employees.”

These are a few:

When Admiral Nimitz said this in a speech at the University of California 22 March 1950, he recognized the resiliency of Sailors during that time and the important role each member of the Navy community plays in Navy and personal readiness. It is a sentiment that still rings true today of the 21st Century Sailor - empowered to prepare ourselves and our families to face any hazards with confidence and an outcome of success.
