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.
