RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - The 28th Civil Engineer Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal flight is scheduled to conduct training on the base’s EOD range from 7 p.m., Sept. 8 until 3 a.m., Sept. 9.

According to a release from Ellsworth, such training activities allow EOD technicians to hone their ability to detect, disarm and dispose of explosive threats.
