Last updated 10/12/2022 at 10:40am

FORT CARSON – Soldiers with 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, will conduct noise-generating training on Ft. Carson starting today and ending Oct. 22.

During this period increased noise and dust should be expected, including in the evenings and throughout the night due to engaged training.

The training is necessary to train and certify company sized elements of approximately 150 Soldiers on infantry tactics while incorporating enablers such as artillery, mortars, and aviation assets. This training enables Soldiers to maintain their lethality so units are prepared for any potential mission they may be called upon to support around the globe.

"Fort Carson is dedicated to being good neighbors and will continue to inform the public about training events that may affect surrounding communities," a press release said. "We will continue to listen to our community and work through any noise issues that may arise. We strive to balance our training requirements with respecting the communities throughout the State of Colorado."

Noise complaints should be directed to the Fort Carson Public Affairs Office at (719) 526-9849.
