Naval Radio Station (T) Jim Creek

Naval Radio Station (T) Jim Creek is divided into two separate and distinct identities. The operational organization is the very low frequency (VLF) naval radio station, which provides operational command and control communications for the Pacific Submarine Fleet by managing, operating and maintaining the AN/FRT-3 VLF Radio Transmitting System and a one-of-a-kind catenary antenna array system. The VLF radio construction started in 1949. The transmitter was first keyed in 1952 and began the official broadcast in 1953. NRS (T) Jim Creek has a reputation as being the “most reliable VLF site.” Naval Radio Station (T) Jim Creek is a tenant organization.

Jim Creek’s secondary purpose is as a regional outdoor recreation area for use by all active-duty military, retired military, DOD civilians, reservists, families and sponsored guests. In this case, Jim Creek is part of the naval station.

Jim Creek is located in the foothills of the North Cascades just outside Arlington, about 30 to 40 minutes from the naval station, and borders the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and the Boulder River Wilderness area. Overnight accommodations include no-hookup campsites, full-hookup RV pads, one- and two-room log cabins, apartment-style dens, and a lodge with kitchen and dining room, bathrooms and a sleeping capacity of up to 50 people. A restroom and shower facility with handicapped access is centrally located near the campgrounds and picnic areas. There are designated areas for group camping, as well as a large picnic pavilion for group picnics, located near the playground, sand volleyball court and horseshoe pits.

Jim Creek is also home to Twin Lakes, two 35-acre lakes located approximately 5 miles from the main campground and famous for its excellent fishing and boating. Along Twin Lakes are hiking and biking trails that meander through old-growth forests.

Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility

Northwest Regional Maintenance Center

In 2003, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and the Naval Intermediate Maintenance Facility, Pacific Northwest (located at Bangor and Everett, Washington) consolidated into one maintenance activity — creating PSNS & IMF. The consolidation improves fleet readiness by allowing the Navy to accomplish the highest priority, real-time ship maintenance requirements while achieving the most maintenance effort possible for the tax dollar.

In addition to the PSNS & IMF consolidation, another opportunity to further improve service to the fleet arose in 2003. Surface ship maintenance organizations including the Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Puget Sound (SSPS), portions of the Commander, Naval Surface Group, Pacific Northwest Maintenance Staff (CNSGPNW), and Fleet Technical Support Center, Pacific Detachment Everett (FTSCPAC Det. Everett) joined PSNS & IMF in standing up the Northwest Regional Maintenance Center (NWRMC). The NWRMC now provides maintenance for every class of Navy vessel.

The PSNS & IMF Bremerton site resides on 179 acres of property bordered on the south by Sinclair Inlet, on the west by Naval Base Kitsap, Bremerton, and on the north and east perimeters by the city of Bremerton. The Bangor site is situated on Naval Base Kitsap, Bangor in Silverdale and provides industrial support for incremental overhaul and repair of TRIDENT submarines, as well as depot-level overhaul of surface ships, aircraft carriers and equipment in the Trident Planned Equipment Replacement Program. The facility’s refit industrial operation, including Everett, is equivalent to that of a submarine tender but on a larger scale.

PSNS & IMF is under claimancy of Commander, Pacific Fleet and operated by Naval Sea Systems Command. The mission of PSNS & IMF is to ensure freedom by fixing ships and supporting the warfighter. The Bremerton facility is also the first and only shipyard in the world that has inactivated and safely recycled nuclear-powered ships, and is widely recognized as the international authority in this field.

The depth of skill and experience inherent in the command’s highly trained workforce continuously pays dividends to the fleet. PSNS & IMF personnel repair and maintain the fleet throughout the world.

Dynamic, innovative leadership, coupled with a burning desire to position these commands to please their customers well into the future, has kept PSNS & IMF focused on continuous improvement in four key areas: world-class maintenance, safety and environmental leadership, technical innovation and dedicated community partnership.

Highly skilled production workers in a number of trades execute ship maintenance with first-time quality. Engineers and planners keep their eyes to the future, using imaginative thinking, planning and designing to keep America’s Navy No. 1 in the world.

Not only does the command employ the latest techniques on ships of the fleet, but also a task force of civil engineers, architects and construction people are busily engaged in modernizing the buildings and machinery where the work of the fleet is done.

The standard of excellence and professionalism is evidenced by the many “well-done” messages received from ships and submarines following work completion, as well as numerous awards.

Network Management Center

The Network Management Center (NMC) provides telecommunications service for Naval Station Everett and its tenant commands, Jim Creek, the Navy Support Complex, commands located in the city of Everett, and homeported and visiting ships. Services include repair, installation and maintenance of telephone systems and user training. They can be reached by calling 425-304-3562 or DSN 727-3562.
