Joint Base Lewis-McChord release about range practice scheduled for today:

May 2, 2013

Demolitions, C-4

Firing is scheduled from 6 a.m. thru 6 p.m. This firing is conducted to maintain proficiency

with this type of explosive.

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

neighboring communities, for informational purposes only. Activities are listed when they may

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.
