WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces (USFF) and Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) will conduct an annual Force Protection and Anti-Terrorism (FP/AT) exercise Citadel Shield (CS) 2013 on naval bases and installations throughout the continental United States Feb. 19 - March 1.

This annual exercise is designed to enhance the training and readiness of Navy security forces to respond to threats to installations and units.

The CS 2013 exercise will test different areas of the Navy's anti-terrorism program and naval security force personnel's ability to respond to real-world threats.

There will be an increase in patrols on and around Navy installations as a result of this planned exercise. Exercise CS 2013 is not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly scheduled exercise.

Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions to normal base and station operations, but there may be times when the exercise causes increased traffic around bases or delays in base access.
