Hearing noises? Explosive ordnance work continues on the base

If you continue to hear loud noise from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, there continue to be good reasons for that.

The Wright-Patt Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team is training Tuesday afternoon from 12:30-3:30. There will be multiple detonations, Fairborn city government noted in a Facebook post today.

The EOD team was training last week, as well, a base spokesman told Cox Media Group Ohio.

The team regularly trains with explosive devices. The 788th Civil Engineer Squadron (CES) operates at Wright-Patterson, where some 30,000 people work. As part of that training, the EOD team must often identify and dispose of explosive devices in a safe manner.

In 2017, 788th CES EOD responded to 13 emergencies supporting civil authorities to include local law enforcement, Wright-Patterson said last year.
