SANTA MARIA, Calif. - Military bases around the nation remained silent on their security measures following the rampage, including some here on the Central Coast.
It was business as usual at Vandenberg Air Force Base, at least that's what it appeared from the outside. A statement from Lt. Kaylee Ausbun read, "Vandenberg personnel are always on alert and ready to respond, however at this time there are no threats in the local area that would indicate an increase in security measures."
Security at military bases and camps is ordered by the Department of Defense in the event of a potential terrorist attack. The Force Protection Condition designates the level of security. Force Protection Condition levels include Normal, Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, and Delta. Each one results in stricter security measures at the base.
Calls to Camp Roberts weren't immediately returned. Vandenberg Air Force Base public affairs wouldn't comment on the Force Protection Condition currently in place at the base.
Reports of security at bases across the nation show that Force Protection Conditions remain unchanged due to this morning's shooting.
