Fort Carson conducting training, expect loud booms

Posted: Updated:
FORT CARSON -

Fort Carson will be conducting training over the next several weeks. 

Those in the area can expect increased dust and noise levels starting today through July 24 while the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division conducts Iron Strike field training.

According to Fort Carson, the exercise includes large-caliber training with live munitions and heavy vehicle traffic. The training also includes day and night live-fire exercises with tanks, artillery, helicopters and other heavy weapons. 

The purpose is to prepare soldiers for future deployment, but it also serves as the final home-station validation exercise prior to the brigade conducting training at Fort Irwin, California.

If you have a noise complaint, you can call the Fort Carson Public Affairs Office at (719) 526-9849.
