Military holding night firing exercise in Debert this weekend

People living near the Debert Rifle Range will probably notice extra noise this weekend.

The military is holding a night firing exercise at the range from sunset until midnight both Friday and Saturday.

Safety teams will monitor and control all activities, but a spokesperson says live ammunition will be used and people should keep clear of the range.

The exercises are being conducted to make sure personnel are familiar with proper weapons handling during night time operations.
