    Staff Sgt. Neal Wilson checks the work of soldier Michael Bryant, bending over, before Bryant fires a round. The 3rd Brigade Combat Team is "certifying" artillery by firing the big guns at Schofield ahead of live-fire exercises.

Residents near Schofield Barracks may experience increases in noise Monday through Thursday , as a result of scheduled training of small arms and artillery live-fire.

The training, will be conducted from about 10 a.m. to 3 a.m.

Army officials warn that training is likely to occur late into the night. Dates and times are subject to change, as the training is contingent on required environmental conditions, such as wind speed and moisture levels.  Additionally, overcast conditions may increase noise and vibrations. Smoke may also be visible for a short time.

To report concerns related to noise or training, call the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii Noise Concern Line at 656-3487.
