Abstract : Hill AFB proposes the construction of a new facility (Facility) for the 388th Fighter Wing (FW) Munitions Flight (Munitions Flight). The Facility would be used for: the maintenance of munitions assets trailers, administrative activities, and training operations. The Facility would have administrative offices, training areas, storage areas, a backup power supply, equipment bays (including an equipment wash rack), and a paint booth. The Facility would be approximately 25,165 square feet (sf) and would include specific parking areas at the building. The Facility is intended to be used to repair and maintain trailers which transport munitions assets and to train wartime core task competencies. The Facility would also require special dedicated communication lines to support telephone and secure data systems. The activities of the Munitions Flight, which would be performed in the proposed Facility, are currently performed in four other buildings located in various locations on the Base. Trailers, which transport munitions assets, would be maintained or repaired in the building. The maintenance would include preventative maintenance on munitions support/handling equipment. This would include changing tires, lubricating brakes, miscellaneous repairs (no welding), painting, sandblasting, and washing. The trailers would not have any munitions on them when they arrive at the Facility. The Facility would also have training areas. These areas would be used to train personnel on wartime core task competencies. Inert munitions representing parent weapons will be used to train personnel. The training bay would function as a Munitions Assembly Conveyer (MAC) and Combat Munitions Training area. The proposed site for the Munitions Maintenance Facility is at the north end of Garland Way, just west of underground water tanks 10927A and 10927B, approximately 1.2 miles to the east of the west entrance gate.
