Naval Air Station Pensacola on lockdown after bomb threat

Police ask public to please stay out of the area.



Update: The Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola West and Main Gates are open to Department of Defense (DoD) identification card holders. The installation areas of public interest – including the the National Naval Aviation Museum (NNAM), the Pensacola Lighthouse and Maritime Museum and Fort Barrancas – are closed.

The main entrance at NAS Pensacola is open, whereas the West Gate and non-Department of Defense access to public areas of interest remain closed while the situation is being assessed by NAS Pensacola and community law enforcement agencies.

At around 10 a.m. today, Navy Security Forces at Naval Air Station Pensacola reacted to a bomb threat.

To prioritize safety and security, service members, civilian employees, and other personnel within the installation are urged to remain in designated safe areas.

Operational zones are currently closed, and all entry gates to the installation will be shut down as NAS Pensacola, along with community law enforcement agencies, evaluates the situation.

This is a developing story that will be updated when more information is available.
