    FORT INDIANTOWN GAP, Pa. – Fort Indiantown Gap is scheduled to host live-fire training exercises during the month of May between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m.

    Exercises include mortars training May 3-6 and May 18-20, artillery training May 4-5 and May 17-19, and demolitions training May 12-13.

    Fort Indiantown Gap announces training that is expected to result in increased noise levels as a courtesy to nearby residents. The training schedule is subject to change based on the military training mission.

    Fort Indiantown Gap is the only live-fire, maneuver military training facility in Pennsylvania.

The installation balances one of the region’s most ecologically diverse areas with a military mission that annually supports 20,000 Pennsylvania National Guard personnel and more than 120,000 additional personnel from other branches of service, multinational partners and interagency partners at the federal, state and local level.
