Naval Station training
It might sound like there’s an emergency at Naval Station Everett on Tuesday, but it’s just a training exercise.
Those nearby might notice increased security, boats in the harbor, gunshots from blank rounds, emergency vehicles and loudspeaker alerts between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
These kinds of drills prepare the Navy for actual emergencies, and help improve coordination between the Navy and other local agencies.
