Camp Williams to conduct live-fire artillery trainings Wednesday to Sunday

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah National Guard has scheduled live-fire artillery training drills at Camp Williams from Wednesday to Sunday.

The drills are anticipated to be conducted from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., from May 12 to May 16. The Utah National Guard said that weather will be assessed before the trainings are conducted.

Residents from the cities of Bluffdale, Eagle Mountain, Herriman, Lehi, Riverton, and Saratoga Springs were warned that they may hear live-fire shooting due to the proximity to Camp Williams.

The Utah National Guard trainings briefly overlap with F-35 night flying exercises held by Hill Air Force Base on most weekdays through May 21. The Air Force said that the night flying might be hard around 10 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.

More F-35A Lightning IIs assigned to Hill Air Force’s 4th Fighter Squadron left Monday for Mont-de-Marsan Air Base in France to participate in more training exercises, including Atlantic Trident 21, according to a spokesperson.
