Eglin Air Force Base is committed to being a good neighbor and building positive relationships with the communities surrounding the base.
With test and training at the forefront of the installation’s mission, the local community may experience noise generated by one of the many aircraft flying around the Eglin reservation, or noise from explosive ordnance disposal training.
The training, conducted to simulate the real world environment the military operates in, saves lives and is critical to the defense of the United States.
In an effort to balance training needs and community concerns, a noise complaint reporting process has been developed to allow members of the community to report noise.
If you experience a noise event and would like to report it, please call the Team Eglin Public Affairs Office at 882-3915 or 882-2779 during business hours, Monday through Friday. The staff will attempt to determine the source of the noise, why it occurred and return your call as soon as possible.
