<p>ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, MD - AUGUST 24: A Category II Mine Resistant, Ambush Protected vehicle (MRAP) is on display during a demonstration at Aberdeen Proving Ground on Friday, August 24, 2007 in Aberdeen, Maryland. According to the Department of Defense, the MRAP vehicle's v-shaped hull and raised chassis has proven to protect troops from improvised explosive devices (IEDs), small-arms and mines. Siting problems with delivery, the Pentagon said it will fall short of its goal of sending 3,500 MRAP vehicles to Iraq by the end of the year. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)</p>
ABERDEEN, Md. — The U.S Army Test and Evaluation Commands along with the U.S. Army Aberdeen Test Center are conducting day and nighttime training at the Aberdeen Proving Ground that may cause a disturbance.
The training events are scheduled for July 15 and 16 and are expected to produce noise that may be heard and felt in the area. The surrounding communities may hear weapon firing and see flashes or light visible off post from illumination devices.
APG says they will monitor the weather and the noise readings throughout each day in effort to make sure it doesn't affect the community. They also say the operations will not be hazardous to residents of the area and are a necessary part of the Army's testing mission.
If anyone in the area is concerned about testing at Aberdeen Proving Ground, they can call the installation at 443-861-6586.
