Soldiers from the 720th Ordnance Company (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) received training on self-contained breathing apparatus equipment during a two-week Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear Hazardous Material Technician Course.
The training provided the Soldiers the skills and knowledge required to respond to a weapon of mass destruction incident.
Although the course has been active for years, the 720th is the first EOD unit to receive this specific course. Through this training the unit is able to get their Soldiers certified on the SCBA, a CBRN equipment the 720th was recently issued and needed to be trained on.
