Bayview's Security Drill

The Navy, sheriff Department and Timberlake Fire District will hold a three day emergency preparedness training exercise. The Dates are: Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, March 23, 24 and 25th. The Fire Commissioners open meeting has been rescheduled for the evening of the 22nd. The lower parking lot at the Bayview community Center and the entire building itself will be utilized for this exercise and will not be open to the public. If you see emergency vehicles careening about town during this period, do not panic, it's not the end times. Just stay out of the way. With not much going on in Bayview During March, this might even be entertainment of sorts...

You may see helicopters, fire engines, (yes from Timberlake) police and sheriff units. The exercise named, as all government programs are, is called, "Solid Curtain." FBI, state and local authorities will also be involved. Areas around the entrance to the Naval Research Facility will be busy and traffic may be disrupted. If so, it is suggested that cars use Perimeter Road to reach the traffic circle during these periods. This does not represent an emergency. It is a scheduled drill to test reaction times and problems associated with a potential breach in security.
