Camp Williams Artillery Exercises

"The Utah National Guard announced that it will conduct a series of artillery training exercises over the next three months at Camp Williams.

Three units of the Utah National Guard, the 640th Regional Training Institute, 1-145th Field Artillery and 2-222nd Field Artillery, are planning exercises during the following dates:

• April 9-12, 640th RTI Live-Fire Exercise

• May 2, 2-222nd Spring Shoot

• May 16, 1-145th Crew Certification

• June 1-5, 2-222nd Annual Training

• June 16-24, 1-145th Annual Training

The April and May dates listed above consist of regularly scheduled drill-weekend training exercises that occur at Camp Williams on an annual or more frequent basis. The June exercises are events that are typically scheduled at Camp Williams every fourth or fifth year. The last time such an exercise was held at Camp Williams was in 2003. Those expected to be most affected by these events are residents of Bluffdale, Riverton, Herriman, Eagle Mountain, Saratoga Springs and Lehi.

For more information on the April exercise, contact the Utah National Guard hot line at (801) 878-5421. A separate hot line number for the May and June artillery exercises will be announced soon." -Daily Herald
