Tomorrow is Demolitions Day at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

By Northwest Military News Team on April 9, 2014

OK, it's not officially Demolitions Day at Joint Base Lewis-McChord tomorrow. Increased levels of activity will be noticed during the evening hours, and demolitions and C4 firings will be conducted from one range on base.

According to JBLM PAO, "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. Good luck.
