Loud BOOMS coming from Devens - Armed Forces Training

Our dispatch center has been overwhelmed with calls about sounds of what appear to be explosions. This is coming from the training facility on Devens. The armed forces will be conducting munitions training throughout the weekend and we would like to remind everyone that there is an active military reserve base close by and that this is a regular occurrence and it poses no threat to public safety.

Thank you and have a good weekend.
