Fuel spill exercise today at the NCBC
The Naval Construction Battalion Center is exercising response, containment, and initial cleanup operations with a fuel-spill exercise today.
This exercise is one of many frequent exercises to test the capabilities of the personnel and equipment onboard NCBC in regards to fuel and other hazardous waste spills.
The exercise is simulated with roughly 1,000 gallons of water. The exercise is designed to enhance the readiness of base personnel and ensure seamless interoperability among the commands, other services, and agency partners.
