Community Briefs – September 20, 2012

Military munitions that were used, but fail to function as intended are called UXO or unexploded ordnance. The United States has always maintained a trained and ready military to protect its national interests. As a result of the munitions-related activities (e.g., live-fire training, testing, disposal operations) required to maintain this force, and other actions (e.g., souvenir collecting), UXO’s may be found in various locations.
Although installations control access to areas known or suspected to contain UXO’s, areas once used heavily by the military may have been transferred to public use.
When anyone encounters or believes they may have encountered a UXO, they should consider it extremely dangerous. To protect family, friends and neighbors, everyone should learn and follow the 3 R’s of explosives safety:

  • Recognize: realize that you may have encountered a UXO and the potential danger
  • Retreat: do not touch, move or disturb a UXO
  • Report: notify local law enforcement (call 911) of what you saw and where you saw it.

For more information, contact the Fort Irwin Explosives Ordnance Deposal Team at 380-4092.
