State Preparedness Training Center

SPTC Training Detonation Schedule

The New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES) will periodically conduct training detonations at the State Preparedness Training Center.   Training detonations are an important component of emergency responder training and the SPTC plans on conducting such training in a safe and secure environment and in such a way as to have a limited impact on the surrounding community. During training sessions you may hear a "bang" or similar unusual noise or you may not hear anything depending on such factors as your proximity to the training Center and weather conditions. Please do not be alarmed as these training sessions are designed to minimize the noise impact to the surrounding community and will present no danger to you.
