Naval Base Coronado
Naval Base Coronado (NBC) is one of the largest consortiums of military installations in the Navy. It is comprised of Naval Air Station North Island, Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, Naval Outlying Landing Field Imperial Beach, Naval Auxiliary Landing Field San Clemente Island, Silver Strand Training Complex (SSTC), Remote Training Site Warner Springs (RTSWS), Camp Michael Monsoor and Camp Morena. These eight geographically separate complexes account for more than 60,000 acres, combining three airfields, three ports, multiple training ranges and more than 1,400 buildings. NBC supports more than 30,000 military and civilian personnel across 142 tenant commands. NBC accommodates the requirements of 23 squadrons, two aircraft carriers, four SEAL teams, Coastal Riverine squadrons and other air, surface and subsurface commands.
NBC provides stewardship for one of the highest concentrations of federally listed species among Department of Defense installations to include 31 marine and terrestrial federally listed species. NBC is committed to environmental stewardship and continues to receive recognition for its outstanding environmental programs. In 2013, NBC won the secretary of the Navy’s environmental award for natural resources conservation for a large installation. This award recognized NBC’s remarkable success in supporting the military readiness mission while sustaining natural resources. NBC also recently earned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Military Conservation Partner Award and the Chief of Naval Operations Natural Resources Conservation Environmental Award.
In its mission to conserve energy and water, NBC continues its aggressive management program to leverage new technologies, change usage habits and achieve Navy conservation goals. NBC’s renewable energy systems exceeded 2,000 watts, and the base is producing more than 3 million kilowatt hours annually. NBC’s energy and water conservation efforts have resulted in recognition by the Secretary of the Navy with the platinum-level Energy and Water Management Award.
Additionally, NBC provides support to our Sailors and their families by providing programs to enhance personal and family readiness, recreational options, housing units, two commissaries, multiple Navy Exchanges, and medical and dental facilities; it is also home to the largest Navy Lodge in the world. NBC empowers families to meet the unique challenges of the military lifestyle by providing them the highest quality of support and service.
