Explosive Remnants of War Disposal Training in Chad in FY2013
During Fiscal Year 2013 US Africa Command (USAFRICOM) deployed military Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) personnel to Chad to conduct Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) disposal training. Training included 'ERW education and risk reduction, demining (survey, marking, mapping, landmine and unexploded ordnance disposal, and quality assurance and control), first responder training with emphasis on blast trauma injuries, stockpile munitions assessments, and program assessment visits to monitor and improve all aspects of the ERW disposal program'. Total costs for the mission were $384,000 which we covered by Overseas Humanitarian, Disaster, and Civic Aid (OHDACA) appropriation.
