Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team

The Arlington Fire Department Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team is comprised of Fire Prevention Inspectors and Investigators who are cross-trained to address the threat of explosive devises.

The EOD Team includes eight explosive detection canines and their handlers and eight certified bomb technicians. Several team members are both dog handlers and certified bomb technicians.

The team provides pre-event “sweeps” of major venues in Arlington and throughout the country, investigates suspicious packages, and disposes of explosives.
