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.
