NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - The Navy says it plans to hire more than 400 people over the next six months to work for an engineering command at bases throughout Hampton Roads.

Naval Facilities Engineering Command Mid-Atlantic says the positions range from engineers and contract specialists to skilled trades such as electricians and plumbers.

The bases the command is staffing include Naval Station Norfolk, Naval Air Station Oceana and Naval Weapons Station Yorktown.

The command provides facilities engineering, public works and environmental products for an area that stretches from North Carolina to Maine and as far west as Illinois and Indiana. The command has more than 3,600 employees, with nearly 2,000 of them in the Hampton Roads area.
