Fort Lewis, Wash. – Fort Lewis will be conducting late night firing on the following dates:
- 13-17 April 2009 Day & Night 155mm Howitzer
- 14-24 April 2009 Day & Night 60mm/81mm/120mm Mortars
Increased levels of activity will be noticed during the evening hours, and firing will be conducted from numerous firing points on the installation.
This is normally scheduled and required training, which allows Soldiers to practice and improve skills required during combat. As often as possible, Fort Lewis conducts larger scale demolition training and artillery firing at the Yakima Training Center in an effort to minimize inconvenience for the surrounding communities. However, some training must take place on the Fort Lewis military reservation.
Queries or comments about noise may be directed to the I Corps Public Affairs Office’s External Communication Division hot line at (253) 967-0852, daily.
