LAKEHURST – As the new year begins with a bang, those aren’t fireworks you’re hearing anymore. It’s the soldiers training at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.
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 January, expect to hear moderate noise. Key days include: January 6 through 13; January 16 through 22; and January 27 through 30. For the rest of the month, days are scheduled for low noise. No high noise is expected.
Noise levels are subject to change without notice due to training requirements and weather, JBMDL said.
