Pax River to take part in CART Exercise Aug. 20-24

NAS Patuxent River will be undergoing Command Assessment and Readiness for Training (CART) 20-24 August 2018. CART is primarily an administrative program assessment with an operational component designed to evaluated post checks, evolutions and drills during the weeklong event. CART is led by CNIC Headquarters and is used as the basis to determine if the Naval Security Force is ready to conduct unit level training.

During this time frame expect to see Security, Fire and other emergency services personnel conducting drills and other evolutions to demonstrate their capabilities and level of proficiency to the CART Assessors. The command will make every effort to give advance notice of these drill and evolutions to include placing signs depicting “EXERCISE IN PROGRESS”.

Please remain clear of drilling areas to the maximum extent possible.
