Update: Live-Fire Artillery Demonstration Cancelled
The live-fire artillery demonstration scheduled for May 15, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Camp Williams, was cancelled until further notice due to high winds.
If conditions become favorable for a live-fire demonstration, an update will be posted to our Twitter account: @UTNationalGuard
The Utah National Guard is scheduled to conduct a week-long artillery live-fire exercise in May at Camp Williams. Those expected to be most affected by these events are residents of Bluffdale, Riverton, Herriman, Eagle Mountain, Saratoga Springs and Lehi. The following dates and times of the life-fire events are approximate:
May 13-15, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
May 16, 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Media and Eagle Mountain residents that live along the border of Camp Williams are invited to view a live-fire artillery demonstration scheduled for May 15, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Camp Williams Tickville Gate, located at the North end of Mustang Way in Eagle Mountain. Because of limited parking in the neighborhood plan to arrive around 5:30 p.m. as space along the fence line could be limited. Utah National Guard leaders will be available for questions. Once the firing has completed a M109 Paladin self-propelled howitzer will be available to view up close. Part of the tactical scenario will include a key leader engagement with residents of Meadow Ranch, Valley View, North Ranch, and Spring Run neighborhoods from Eagle Mountain.
