NAF El Centro Elevates Security

NAF El Centro Elevates Security


EL CENTRO, CA - If it seems security is a little tighter at NAF El Centro there is a reason. Naval Air Facility El Centro is participating in Exercise Solid Curtain/Citadel Shield, a Navy Wide exercise designed to enhance the training and readiness of Navy Security Forces to respond to threats to installations and units.   

As part of this exercise, Naval Air Facility El Centro has elevated its Force Protection Condition.  As part of that increase in Force Protection, there will be 100% ID checks at the front gate for everyone 16 years of age or older.  In addition, there may be delays accessing the installation and changes to parking on the installation.  

All Naval Air Facility El Centro facilities will be open during the exercise, with the exception of the Navy Exchange, which will be closed on Friday, March 23rd.  Base Operations will continue as normal.
