JBLM to do day and night firing today through Sunday

July 11, 2013 

Joint Base Lewis-McChord will conduct day and night firing today through Sunday. They will fire demolitions and C4.

The purpose of the late-night training is to maintain unit proficiency on demolitions and C4. Increased levels of activity will be noticed during the evening hours, and firing will be conducted from one range on base.

This is normally scheduled and required training, which allows military members to practice and improve skills required during combat.

Questions or comments about noise can be directed to the JBLM Public Affairs Office’s External Communication Division hot line at 253- 967-0852.
