MCIPAC will be conducting our annual Constant Vigilance exercise across all Marine Corps facilities in Okinawa from 20-24 September 2015. This regular training ensures that MCIPAC facilities and personnel, as well as our Japanese partners, friends and neighbors, are well-equipped and trained to deal with a wide variety of scenarios, to... include emergency, medical, security and terrorist response. Base residents and employees should expect to see the following activities as a part of the exercise:

1. An increase in First Responder activity to include all Emergency Services (Fire, Rescue, Police).

2. Role players acting out protection related scenarios.

3. Vehicle searches at Gates and other elevated security measures.

4. An increased presence of armed guard patrols.

5. Helicopter flights.

6. Areas blocked off for training events.

7. A presence of Japanese Ground Self Defense Force personnel aboard Camp Courtney, Camp Foster and MCAS Futenma.

8. Potential minor delays in reaching your intended destinations.

Though MCIPAC will be conducting the exercise during this timeframe, and there will be role-playing scenarios at multiple locations, we ask that base residents and employees remain vigilant as always.
