NOISE ADVISORY: Extension of live fire training into range quiet hours
———————————————————————
Expeditionary Warfare Training Group Atlantic (EWTGLANT) is scheduled to conduct training involving fixed wing aviation, artillery and mortars after the normal midnight curfew until 2 a.m., August 22 through 26.

EWTGLANT intends to fire 155mm artillery, 60 and 81mm mortars, release inert training bombs, and shoot 20 and 25mm guns from low flying jet aircraft into the G-10 range impact area to meet training requirements.

Joint Terminal Attack Controllers are required to complete a minimum of two night controls prior to certification. Sufficient night time does not exist during spring and summer months to execute required night controls. Every effort to mitigate noise and complete training prior to midnight will be made.

The community's patience and understanding is appreciated as the base strives to provide the best possible training experience for our Nation's Marines and Sailors.

UPCOMING EVENT: Child Seat Inspections will be conducted by the MCIEAST-MCB Safety Department Wednesday, July 27 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Main Exchange parking lot.

Over the past year, the Safety Department in conjunction with Safe Kids, Naval Hospital Safety, Provost Marshal’s Office, Camp Lejeune Fire Department, Jacksonville Police Department, North Carolina Highway Patrol and the Onslow County Sheriff's Office have inspected many car seats of various types. We have discovered that most car seats were found to be unserviceable or improperly Installed. The Safety Department along with our law enforcement partners encourage all parents to take the extra step and have your child car seat inspected.

REMINDER: Beginning Monday, August 8, Camp Lejeune's Wilson Boulevard Gate will be open 24/7 and the Tarawa Terrace II Gate will only be open from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. After 5 p.m., TT and Knox Cove residents can use the Wilson Gate to access their respective housing areas. This change is part of an overall measure to realign security efforts away from non-essential gates during non-peak hours toward main gate entry points where they are most needed. Along with Wilson Gate, Camp Lejeune's Main Gate, Sneads Ferry Gate and Triangle Outpost Gate will remain open 24/7. The patience of all our base residents is appreciated.
