Environmental Policy

We, Nellis AFB, Creech AFB, and the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR), are stewards of the environment. We will perform our duties following the legal requirements while preventing pollution and continually improving our environmental programs. The Environmental Management System (EMS) Cross Functional Team (CFT), subcommittees, and other working groups will provide the driving force to achieve our environmental goals and targets.

2017 Environmental Policy/Commitment Statement

Nevada Test & Training Range

The Nevada Test and Training Range consists of approximately 2.95 million acres of federal land that has been withdrawn from public use and reserved for military use. The Air Force plans to notify Congress of a continuing need for the NTTR. Congress will make the final decision as to whether or not to renew the NTTR land withdrawal. The current withdrawal will expire in November 2021 unless Congress enacts legislation to extend it.
