The 823rd REDHORSE squadron will conduct monthly explosive demolition training between 8am and 3pm on February 2nd at the Hurlburt Field Range.

During the training, nearby residents may hear loud noise or feel the vibrations associated with the demolition charge detonations that are planned to occur periodically throughout the day.
