If you`re near the DND grounds in Vernon over the next few weeks and hear gunfire, it`s nothing to worry about.
The Vernon Cadet Training Centre will be conducting blank ammunition firing at the parade square next to the sports fields until August 16th.
Intermittent rifle fire may be heard in the mornings from 9:00am to 11:00 am and evenings from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm.
It`s not a live fire exercise.
The cadets will be using blank rounds filled with gun powder and no projectile.
The firing is taking place as part of cadet drill and ceremonial summer training as the cadets prepare for their final Sunset Parade the evening of August 16th.
