Marine Corps Base Quantico will continue live-fire training over the next week, which may result in loud noises and noticeable ground vibrations.

Training will be held at the following dates and time frames:

  • Sunday, Sept. 20, 7 a.m.-4 p.m.
  • Monday, Sept. 21, 8 a.m.-midnight

  • Tuesday, Sept. 22, 7 a.m.-midnight

MCB Quantico operates 43 live-fire ranges that support training from small arms to explosive demolitions to artillery fire to the delivery of live-aerial munitions.   

The impact of noise, vibrations, and/or illuminations experienced across the area can vary greatly depending on the residential location, atmospheric conditions and reductions to naturally occurring sound barriers.
