Comox Valley Record

Expect some booming or popping in the Comox Valley

Canadian Forces improvised explosive device disposal teams will train in the Comox Valley from Feb. 21 until March 1.

While much of this training will take place at Canadian Forces Base Comox, exercise participants will also be operating at the Seal Bay training area and HMCS Quadra (Goose Spit).

Residents in these areas may see increased military activity. Due to the nature of the training activities, residents may also hear the occasional explosion or "popping" noises throughout the day, from approximately 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., including weekends.

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

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