If your windows are shaking and you hear loud noises in the distance a little more than usual, it might be the demolition training at Fort Riley and the 1st Infantry Division.
According to Fort Riley’s website, a noise and training advisory is in effect Feb. 2-12.
For Feb. 2-10, the scheduled training is expected to create “significant noise” during all hours of the day.
For Feb. 11-12, “significant noise” is expected from 12:30 a.m. to midnight.
“Fort Riley and the 1st Infantry Division appreciate the enormous sacrifices made by our neighbors as we train for the defense of our country,” the website states. “Among those sacrifices is the occasional disruption of daily life by the sometimes intrusive noise caused by on-post training. Sometimes this fast-paced training results in loud artillery, low-flying aircraft, weapons or demolition noise.”
Neighbors with concerns “regarding noise, vibration, excessive dust, low-flying aircraft and/or maneuver damage from the Fort Riley area” are encouraged to contact Fort Riley’s Community Relations department by calling (785) 239-3033 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fort Riley’s Public Affairs did not respond to a phone call request for comment by 10 p.m. on Feb. 6.
