Naval Security Forces will conduct training exercises at NBK-Bangor April 11 and 12

Naval Security Forces personnel will conduct training exercises at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor on Thursday, April 11 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and Friday, April 12 from 7 a.m. to noon.

Local residents and base personnel working on NBK-Bangor should expect loud noises and increased activity by emergency responders in support of the training, to include the use of blank ammunition, simulated explosive devices, and smoke.

Non-participants are advised to stay away from the exercise areas during the training period as traffic may be limited and emergency response vehicles will be active. Drivers on NBK-Bangor lower base should prepare for potential roadblocks or traffic diversions. Training maneuvers should not affect normal operations.

The Navy routinely conducts these types of security exercises, which ensures readiness and verifies response procedures.
