NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Soldiers and Marines attending training at Robinson Maneuver Training Center in North Little Rock this week will participate in live fire mortar and explosives training on ranges at the Center.

The training will take place on several days this week:

  • Monday - March 11, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Wednesday - March 13, 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
  • Saturday - March 16, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The training will occur on ranges located on the northeast side of Camp Robinson near Cato, and south of Arkansas Hwy. 89.

The sound of the artillery fire and explosions will likely carry outside Camp Robinson's perimeter and may potentially cause concern in the surrounding area. We request media assistance in providing the area surrounding Camp Robinson with a public awareness notice in an effort to ease concern during these periods.

Communities in proximity to the training area which may hear or feel effects of the training beyond the borders of the post include: Cato, Mayflower, Runyon Acres, Gravel Ridge, and Oak Grove.
