Fort Carson announces live fire training through June 30th

Posted: Updated:
FORT CARSON -

Field training exercises are underway at Fort Carson through June 30th. The 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division will conduct the training in Fort Carson's training area.

They are doing large-caliber training and using live ammunition, meaning you'll see more dust and experience higher noise levels around the area. Field training includes day and night live-fire exercises using artillery, aerial gunnery and other heavy weapons. 

The purpose of the exercise is to prepare 3rd ABCT, 4th Inf. Div. Soldiers and leaders for any possible future deployments.

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