Range Operations new name for Range
|Range Operations is the new name for what had been
Range Control, according to a directive from the Installation Management
Command (IMCOM) commanding general.
Terry Hoff, Fort McCoy Range Officer, said the new name standardizes
referral throughout IMCOM so Soldiers and others needing to use these
services have one name to remember.
Range Control no longer will be used to refer to any of these services.
Range Operations at Fort McCoy will encompass the Fire Desk, Range
Inspectors, and Range Scheduling sections.
Hoff said the Fire Desk operates communications for units using the
range complex. So now when units call on the radio, instead of using the
call sign Range Control they will use Fire Desk.
The Inspectors and Range Scheduling provide other Range Operations
“All the other organizations (in the Range Management Branch) will
remain the same,” Hoff said. “Customers won’t see any changes in the
services we provide to them.”
