If ammunition is to be expended over a period of time, the unit may establish an ammunition holding area. Selection of the holding area site and storage in the holding area will be in accordance with DA Pamphlet 385–64. THE HOLDING AREA SITE AND THE DURATION OF OPERATION WILL BE APPROVED IN ADVANCE BY THE FIRST LIEUTENANT COLONEL IN THE OPERATIONAL CHAIN-OF-COMMAND in coordination with local Installation Commander responsible for the holding area. The ammunition stored in the holding area will not exceed the amount needed for the training event.
Field Storage of Ammunition
A temporary barrier will be minimum of 3 trands of concertina wire.
Note: This overrides the requirements of USARAK Regulation 190-1 Appendix D this is a more stringent requirement and this will be used.
(USARAK Regulation 350-5, Chapter 15)
Magazine Data Card’s (DA Form 3020-R) will be used for munitions remaining in a storage location more than 24 hours.

A minimum of two serviceable fire extinguishers will be available.

Ammunition and explosives will be stored by storage compatibility groups (SCGs).
(DA PAM 385-64, para 4-3c and Table 4-3)
Ammunition and explosives stored in the open should be protected to the extent possible from extreme weather conditions. As a minimum, ammunition and explosives should be stored on at least 3 inches of Dunnage, on well-drained ground, and covered by fire-retardant tarpaulins. Units will ensure lot integrity is maintained for ammunition, as loss of lot integrity renders the ammunition unserviceable. Should extensive storage operations be undertaken, refer to DA PAM 385-64, paragraph 15-5, Field Manual (FM) 9-13, FM 9-38, and USARAK Regulation 350-2.
