Weapons Training at Camp Robinson to Begin on Monday

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (News release) -  Residents near Camp Robinson may notice loud noises starting Monday, Oct. 23. 

The Arkansas National Guard will begin conducting weapons live-fire training on Oct. 23-29. 

The training will occur at various times throughout the week on ranges located in the central portion of the Post. 

The training will involve the use of heavy weapons which produce extremely loud noises.

Communities in proximity to the training area that may hear or feel effects of the training beyond the borders of the post include:  Cato, Gravel Ridge, Runyon Acres, Sylvan Hills, portions of Levy and North Little Rock.

Due to cloud cover and weather conditions, the weapon noise and associated sounds are likely to carry outside Camp Robinson's perimeter and may potentially cause concern in the surrounding area.

The Arkansas National Guard understands that some aspects of ongoing military training creates disruptive noise and ground vibration concerns.  And, as a concerned partner, the Guard endeavors to keep our neighbors near the post informed when such external effects can be expected.

Through our training, and the continued support of our communities, the Arkansas National Guard and our collocated sister service organizations, can continue to make positive contributions to the safety and security of our state and nation.
