Fort Carson’s 3rd Brigade Combat Team will begin loud combat training operations on Friday, Aug. 27, which will continue through much of September and October. They warned these operations could generate loud noises and dust for people neighboring Fort Carson.

As part of artillery, mortar, and tank training, Fort Carson officials warned people neighboring the base that a combat team will begin conducting loud operations starting Friday.

Those operations, Fort Carson officials said in a press release, will continue through Sept. 10, and will begin again on Sept. 20. That time, they'll continue through October, ending on Nov. 2.

The operations are being carried out by the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, part of the 4th Infantry Division, in order to “prepare units for any potential missions they may be called upon to support around the globe.”

Officials added in the release that neighbors should expect an increase in dust, including during evening and night hours.

“Fort Carson is dedicated to being good neighbors and will continue to inform the public about training events that may affect surrounding communities,” they said. “We will continue to listen to our community and work through any noise.”

Noise complaints, officials said, should be reported to the Fort Carson Public Affairs office, which people can reach by calling 719-526-9849.
