  LAKEHURST – If you happen to hear loud booms in the area, it’s the soldiers training at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JBMDL).

  Every month, JBMDL releases their “Noise Level Calendar” so residents know when to expect mild or severe noise. This is to deter calls to local 911 dispatchers. The calendar is labeled with three different levels of noise: slight noise, moderate noise and abundant noise.

  For the month of February, a majority of days are scheduled for “moderate noise.” Some key days to look out for are February 4, 18 and 19 which are scheduled for “high noise.” Additionally, February 12 is scheduled for “low noise.”

  Noise levels are subject to change without notice due to training requirements and weather, JBMDL said.
