NSA Annapolis Prepares for Exercise Citadel Shield-Solid Curtain 2018


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

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Naval Support Activity (NSA) Annapolis is preparing to participate in the scheduled exercise Citadel Shield-Solid Curtain (CS-SC) 2018, which is set to take place Jan 29 - Feb. 9.

CS-SC is an annual force protection exercise conducted by Fleet Forces Command and Commander, Navy Installations Command on all Navy installations in the continental United States. The exercise is designed to help train Navy security forces and establish best practices in actual emergency scenarios.

"This is just awesome," said Stephen Henrick, emergency management officer for NSA Annapolis. "This is why I came in to emergency management as a retired chief damage controlman in the Navy. This is what I did on the ship and now I'm just using that to expand into my second career. Drills and exercises allow you to use a simulated event and take the steps to make sure your community is resilient and can recover as rapidly as possible."

After having finished a 20-year Navy career, this is Henrick's first chance to participate in a Citadel Shield-Solid Curtain exercise. He says he looks forward to working alongside local emergency services, including the Annapolis Fire Department, Anne Arundel County Emergency Management and the Baltimore-Washington Medical Center.

"Being new to the position, this is my first real opportunity to work with the city of Annapolis and provide coordination and cooperation with the resources they can provide us, so we can make sure we fulfill our mission and protect our Sailors, staff and faculty on the installation. It's extremely important that we have an opportunity to work with agencies outside the fence line, because as we know, when there's a disaster it doesn't stop at the fence line," said Henrick.

Joe Glennon, NSA Annapolis' installation training officer, has participated in seven Citadel Shield-Solid Curtain exercises and sees each exercise as a means to expand capabilities.

"We gather lessons learned from what we've missed from previous exercises, what we've learned from this exercise and we continue to grow from there for the following year. We continue to do these exercises because it prepares our installations for the real world event, so that our people are better prepared to execute. We want to make sure that we train the way we fight and fight the way we train," said Glennon.

CS-SC18 is not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly scheduled exercise.
