Live Fire Range

The DOE NTC Live Fire Range (LFR) is used by DOE security personnel, other Federal personnel, military personnel, and state and local law enforcement personnel.

The LFR is situated on Kirtland Air Force Base, adjacent to Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was originally established in 1984. The LFR occupies 698 acres, most of which is unimproved hilly land used as the surface danger zone behind the several live fire ranges that comprise the facility.

Located off of Coyote Springs Road southeast of the NTC main campus and approximately 0.6 miles past the Integrated Safety and Security Training and Evaluation Complex (ISSTEC), the permanent facilities and classrooms at the LFR consist of six firing ranges, a Range Control Facility, an administration building, an armory, two shoot houses, a maintenance shop, three classrooms (classroom F, the MP classroom, and the armory classroom), and six small permanent buildings, together with numerous small temporary buildings used for training, maintenance, and ammunition storage.

The LFR is available to DOE and DOE-affiliated entities as well as other authorized Federal and state agencies. ‚Äč
