Noise advisory issued for Schofield Barracks area

SCHOFIELD BARRACKS (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Residents in the area of Schofield Barracks may experience periodic increases in noise on September 26 because of scheduled training exercises.

The training, consisting of artillery fire will be conducted from approximately 7 a.m.-3 p.m.

 U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii says the effects of training vary depending on weather, as overcast conditions may increase noise and vibrations.

Smoke may be visible for a short time; however, there is no immediate danger. 

"The Army in Hawaii appreciates the community's understanding and continued support of local Soldiers and their families. While sometimes loud, the sounds of training represent how the Army ensures our nation's Soldiers are ready to accomplish the mission and return home safely," the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii reported.

To report concerns related to noise or training, please call the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii (USAG-HI) Noise Concern Line at 656-3487.

The USAG-HI Public Affairs Office will contact you about your concern during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
