Who We Are
Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) personnel are highly trained, skilled technicians who are experts in explosives, diving, and parachuting. EOD technicians share the task of rendering safe and disposing of explosive material. Explosive Ordnance Disposal technicians protect and save lives by analyzing and handling foreign, domestic, and home-made explosives. They routinely work with the U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. State Department, helping to protect the President, Vice President and other state and foreign officials and dignitaries. They support the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs Office, and the FBI as well as state and local police bomb squads. EOD technicians also assist in security at large international events, such as the Olympics or world summits.
Their job takes them all over the world, helping to clear minefields, prepare coastal areas for amphibious landings and provide intelligence about potential threats both in the U.S. and abroad.
