ABERDEEN, MD—Loud noise alert!

Aberdeen Proving Ground officials say the base has firing operations scheduled for this week.

APG has daytime and nighttime testing operations scheduled through Friday, June 9, 2023, approximately 8:30 a.m. to midnight.  Noise may be heard in some areas off the installation.

Military weapons will be visible during daytime and nighttime hours. Residents may hear weapons firing and see flashes or light visible off post from illumination devices. These operations are not hazardous to residents in surrounding communities and are integral to ensuring continued readiness of service members.

Organizations at APG take every measure to mitigate instances when training or testing becomes problematic to residents off the installation. Officials monitor the weather and noise readings continuously throughout each day. APG leadership takes noise complaints seriously and wants to provide as much transparency as possible to the surrounding communities without compromising the security of the missions conducted at the base.

If, at any time, anyone in the surrounding communities is concerned about testing at Aberdeen Proving Ground, they are encouraged to contact the installation at 410-278-4091.
