- Noise and Training Advisory:

Fort Riley and the 1st Infantry Division appreciate the enormous sacrifices made by our neighbors as we train for the defense of our country. Among those sacrifices is the occasional disruption of daily life by the sometimes intrusive noise caused by on-post training.


The 1st Infantry Division and the other units that call Fort Riley and the Central Flint Hills Region home, train hard to be ready at a moment's notice to answer our nation's call. Sometimes this fast-paced training results in loud artillery, low-flying aircraft, weapons or demolition noise.


Small arms fire may occur at any time and produce noise that can be heard in surrounding local communities. Scheduled training that could yield significant noise from tank, artillery, and mortar certification fire may also result in vibrations causing ground and structures to shake.  Please see below for periods of scheduled training with expected noise or vibrations. 

  • February 15 to February 25: There WILL BE loud noise.
