Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team

The mission of the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team is to eliminate hazards from ordnance, which jeopardize operations conducted in support of the national security strategy by providing combat-ready EOD forces to the fleet. EOD shore-based detachments are located at shore activities that have a need for continuous EOD support. EOD mission support includes general ordnance handling, transportation, storage, disposal and/or safety missions, live fire training, range clearance and underwater ordnance testing. A shore-based EOD detachment may be deployed by their operational commander for area or regional response in support of military and civilian incidents and accidents involving underwater and surface ordnance, nuclear and chemical weapons and improvised explosive devices. These operations may involve diving, collecting ordnance related intelligence and providing EOD support in response to requests by higher authority. Additionally, they provide VIP protective support for the U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. Department of State, as required.
