Force Protection

NAS Sigonella’s Force Protection Division is responsible for the coordination and implementation of DoD and USN Force Protection policies and directive to prevent hostile actions against all military members and family, resources, facilities, critical assets and information. Some of the policies implemented are transparent to the rest of the community as most FP measures are conducted by the Security Department within the confines of the instillation. However, military members and their dependents stationed overseas are vulnerable to terrorist tactics especially while off base, and the FP Division is at the forefront in providing the necessary information and actions in order to prevent NASSIG personnel from becoming victims of terrorism. Current and up to date information regarding threats in the area are disseminated through distribution of Daily Travel Advisory, providing area specific briefs for leave, conduct AT Level I indoctrination brief for newly reported personnel and conduct vulnerability assessment for off base facilities used for gatherings.

Force Protection is every ones responsibility and although the Security Department provides security for the instillation, the robust FP policies implemented at NAS Sigonella involve all personnel from the various departments and tenant commands. The FP Division is the central point for coordination of implementation of base wide measures to ensure uniformity and consistency. All hands involved in FP measures conducted by departments and tenant commands include Random Antiterrorism Measures and Antiterrorism drills. This degree of involvement from all levels ensures that all personnel are well aware of the necessary action to take to avoid becoming victims of terrorism.
