Naval District Washington Prepares for Exercise Citadel Shield-Solid Curtain 2018

01/25/18

By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Jason Amadi Naval District Washington Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Naval installations in the National Capital Region are preparing to participate in the scheduled Exercise Citadel Shield-Solid Curtain 2018 (CS/SC18), which is set to take place Jan. 29 - Feb. 9.

All Navy installations within the continental United States are set to participate in the two-week exercise, with Citadel Shield being led by Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) in the first week and Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFFC) leading Solid Curtain the following week. CS/SC is an annual exercise where Navy security forces undergo realistic scenarios intended help maintain a high level of readiness.

"This exercise is designed to test our response to threats and ability to communicate," said Matt Brown, Naval District Washington (NDW) training and exercise director. "We're looking to asses our Anti-Terrorism Force Protection (ATFP) performance and enhance our capabilities based on the data we're able to collect.

During the exercise, Force Protection Conditions will be increased at all Navy installations. Members of local communities may experience an increase in traffic around the installations and personnel may experience delays when trying to enter.

"This is a coordinated effort between us and local emergency services and the lessons learned from this exercise are very important when it comes to shaping our training and mapping out protocol moving forward," said Brown.

"It's important to train the way we fight," said James Pelkofski, NDW director of operations. "During those two weeks we're going to exercise our personnel, identify any deficiencies in our approach and do our best to correct them. In the event of a real-life emergency scenario we want to be able to react from muscle-memory and exercises like these are how we're able to do that.

Personnel should register for the AtHoc wide area alert network if they have not already done so in order to be aware of force protection conditions and other emergency, environmental, or exercise related impacts on the area. Staggered entry and exit times for personnel working on installations should be considered in order to limit traffic at entry control points. Personnel should also familiarize themselves with their command or tenant command anti-terrorism plan to better know what to expect during the exercise.
