JBLM late-night firing announcement

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. – Joint Base Lewis-McChord will conduct late-night firing on the following date(s):

DATE               Thursday, March 10, 2016         

TIME                12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.

FIRING OF        60 mm mortars

4th Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment on JBLM will conduct training with 60mm mortars. Increased levels of activity will be noticed beginning at midnight, continue during the day, and through the evening hours, and firing will be conducted one range on base.

This is required training, which allows military members to practice and improve skills necessary during combat. As often as possible, JBLM conducts larger scale weapons and demolition training and artillery firing at the JBLM Yakima Training Center in an effort to minimize inconvenience for the surrounding communities. However, some training must take place on base.

Queries or comments about noise may be directed to the JBLM Public Affairs Office’s External Communication Division hotline at (253) 967-0852, daily.
