Joint Base Lewis-McChord will conduct late-night firing from April 10 through the 14 of 155mm Howitzer.
This late-night firing is pre-deployment training by one of the infantry units on base. Increased levels of activity will be noticed during the evening hours, and firing will be conducted from one firing point on base.
This is normally scheduled and required training, which allows military members to practice and improve skills required during combat. As often as possible, JBLM conducts larger scale demolition training and artillery firing at 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 hot line at (253) 967-0852, daily.
