Marines to Conduct Range Training at Joint Base MDL; Residents May Hear Loud Noises, Feel Ground Shaking

Residents in and around the Joint Base MDL can expect an increase of range activity due to units conducting training at the Dix ranges Feb. 22-24. The 87th Civil Engineer Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal will conduct demolitions training Feb. 22.

Members of Golf Battery and India Battery of the 3rd Battalion 14th Marine Regiment are scheduled to conduct day and night firing training Feb. 22-24.

The training is scheduled to end by 11 p.m. each training day.

“This training is essential and helps to ensure the readiness of America’s fighting force,” a spokesperson for Joint Base says.

As a result of both batteries performing their important training, residents may hear more noise than usual coming from the ranges and may experience possible ground shaking. It is important to note that noise from the ranges may travel farther during overcast weather conditions.

“Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst works hard to minimize the impact training has on its surrounding communities and is committed to remaining good neighbors.” TLS.
