COLTS NECK - It won't be overly noisy, but it will seem mighty busy around Naval Weapons Station Earle on October 3, during base-wide emergency management and security training.

Officials at the installation say that drivers shouldn't be surprised to find sporadic slowdowns at the mainside gate on Route 34 in Colts Neck, and the waterfront gate on Route 36 in Middletown's Leonardo section.

Nearby residents are likely to spot security activity within the drills, and hear related announcements on the base emergency broadcast system. The announcements will be prefaced and appended with the repeated phrase, "Exersice-Excersice-Exercise."
