Fighting the enemy on the frontlines doesn’t actually begin on the battlefield, it begins at home on the training fields. Both military and civilian personnel everywhere like to stay sharp at the shooting range, however, such training becomes dangerous without the proper maintenance of these shooting facilities.
To stay in use, gun ranges must meet certain codes that are set in place to minimize the impact of lead on the environment. Non-compliance with these regulations results in fines issued by the Shooting Range Cleaning and Maintenance Division of the HCI Environmental and Engineering Service department. In addition, according to the Army’s website, “The Army set(s) an Operational Readiness Rate standard of 95 percent, meaning 95 percent of all ranges need to be operational at all times,” This is required for both indoor and outdoor shooting lanes.
At The Ginn Group, our job is to keep these facilities up to standards. This could require anything from regular upkeep, like cutting grass and painting posts, to bigger projects like clearing and building new ranges. Nevertheless, whatever the venture, it is our duty to provide the best possible training environment and safest range of equipment for those who wish to use it.
We understand that it is facilities like these that provide our servicemen and women with the training that they deserve. If you need help with the upkeep of your private or public range, give The Ginn Group a call today. We’ll be happy to get started.
