CEATS Training Schedule Update

Vermont National Guard Public Affairs

JERICHO, Vermont  –  

The Camp Ethan Allen Training Site has updated their schedule based on a need for increased firing times. 

Vermont units are on a compressed time line because of training requirements leading up to likely 2021 deployments, training year 2020 requirements, and limited use during the past 10 months. Live fire is set for this weekend, and over the course of the next two weeks.

“Night fire is an important part of training and part of unit validation,” said Col. Justin Davis, commander, Garrison Support Command, Vermont Army National Guard. “Units are in a tight window in preparing for deployment. We need to take advantage of every opportunity we have,” said Davis.

In addition to preparing for deployment, units have requirements that must be met within the training year which ends September. Training has often occurred at Fort Drum to meet requirements. Fort Drum has implemented a mandatory two week quarantine period for National Guard units which equates to an annual training period – eliminating Fort Drum as a possibility to mitigate the impact on the community around CEATS.

CEATS is a subordinate unit of the Garrison Support Command. Plans, operations, range safety, and all operations at the range are run by a dedicated full-time and part-time staff. Range staff has also led multiple efforts to mitigate the impact of noise on the local community. Range operations are subject to change.

All noise complaints and range inquiries should be directed to the Vermont National Guard State Public Affairs office by calling 802-338-3000 and using option three. You can also e-mail inquiries through the VTNG Public Affairs mailbox at: ng.vt.vtarng.mbx.vtng-statepao@mail.mil.
