Residents near the base may hear sirens, loudspeakers, and simulated gunfire.

A training exercise at a military base northeast of Detroit could include sirens, loudspeakers, and simulated gunfire.

Officials at Selfridge Air National Guard base in Harrison Township say the training will be held Wednesday and people living nearby might hear some of the exercise.

The Michigan Air National Guard conducts regular training to ensure personnel can appropriately respond to a wide range of scenarios.

The base opened as Selfridge Field on July 1, 1917. It is home to the Michigan Air National Guard's 127th Wing.
