This schedule of significant range activity is provided as a courtesy for residents of

produce noise or other disturbances beyond the boundary of JBLM’s maneuver training areas,
weapons ranges, and artillery impact area. Actual noise or vibrations experienced can vary
according to the type of training conducted, distance from firing point or impact area, and
intervening terrain. Atmospheric conditions also play a significant role in the amount of noise
experienced and distance the sound may travel from its point of origin. This schedule reflects
that a range has been reserved, and the type of training scheduled to take place. Firing may
take place from various firing points, at various times, throughout the time reserved for
training. Ranges may be rescheduled, postponed, or cancelled at any time. Unscheduled range
activity may occur at the discretion of the range control office.
