MAYPORT, Fla. -

Naval Station Mayport will be participating in a nationwide security exercise through the end of February.

Exercise Solid Curtain/Citadel Shield (SC-CS) 2014 is scheduled for February 18-28th.

It was developed to enhance the training and readiness of the Navy's security personnel.  It's a regularly scheduled exercise and is not in response to any specific threat.

Personnel can expect to see increased security measures and elevation of Force Protection Conditions during this period.

The exercise will be conducted to allow Navy security personnel to sharpen training skills and situational readiness through real-life training scenarios.

Military personnel, civilian employees, retirees, and family members should be prepared to encounter traffic delays on roads near the installation, as well as at the installation gates.

It's recommended that you add time to your travel plans to avoid being late for appointments on board Naval Station Mayport.

No closures of facilities such as the Navy Exchange, Commissary, Pharmacy, and Navy medical facilities are planned.

Ensure you have the proper identification for entry onto the installation and follow all directions from security personnel.
