CAMP SHELBY, MS (WDAM) -

The Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center will conduct live fire, maneuver, and aviation activities at its ranges throughout August and September.

Due to this ongoing training, the Pinebelt community should be aware of various gate closures and temporary barricades throughout the Camp Shelby training areas. 

Firing will be conducted at the East Air to Ground range throughout August and September this year.

Several gate closures and temporary barricades should be expected throughout the range complex and training areas during this time.

These areas are off-limits to the public and civilians are not allowed to cross any closed gates or temporary barricade, according to officials.   

Over the next few months, military units may also conduct driving operations at night without headlights.

The public is advised to proceed with caution throughout Camp Shelby's training areas and be aware of these maneuvers as well as traffic control points.
