Applicability. The standards and procedures in this pamphlet apply to all personnel and range operations and activities on Army or Marine Corps controlled property or within Army or Marine Corps jurisdiction. The provisions of this pamphlet apply in peacetime and contingency operations and are advisory for actual combat operations. Except for airspace and water traffic safety requirements, these provi-sions do not apply to development, proof and function test ranges, or laboratories. However, Army commands, Army Service component commands, direct reporting units, and Marine Corps installations having such ranges and laboratories are required to develop and apply alternate standards that are appropriate to the mission and that ensure the preservation of life and property.
This pamphlet provides minimum requirements for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps Range Safety Programs prescribed in Army Regulation (AR) 385-63 and Marine Corps Order (MCO) 3570.1C. It also establishes standards and procedures for the safe firing of ammunition, demolitions, lasers, guided missiles, and rockets, and the delivery of bombs for training, target practice, and to the extent practicable, combat.
