Military will be noisy during training in Comox Valley

Canadian Armed Forces explosives ordnance disposal teams will be training in the Comox Valley from Feb. 20 until March 1.

During this time, residents are advised that they may see increased military activity.

While much of this training will take place at Canadian Forces Base Comox (main site), exercise participants will also be operating at CFB Comox (Goose Spit site), and other locations throughout the Comox Valley, as pre-coordinated with local land owners.

Due to the nature of the training activities, residents may also hear occasional explosive sounds or “popping” noises throughout the day, from approximately 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., including weekends. Only small firecracker-like devices will be used during off-base training.

Safety for the public and military personnel is paramount to any military exercise and all activities will be carried out within approved CAF training safety regulations.

19 Wing thanks residents for their understanding and continued co-operation as members complete this important exercise.
