Smoke and Sound


Welcome to the "Smoke and Sound" information page. It's our intent to keep you informed on why and when we will conduct controlled burning on post, so you not only have a better understanding of its necessity, but you can plan for it and adjust your activities, as needed.

This site will also provide information about the types of training we conduct here, when Soldiers will fire live rounds and on which ranges.

As our closest neighbors, we want you to have a better appreciation and understanding of how and why America's Soldiers train, how Fort Benning's land management programs impact us all, and how both are vital to the success of our Soldiers, the defense of our nation and to the good stewardship of our installation's natural resources.

If there is information you desire that is not currently provided on this site, please let us know at
