The Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) community across the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force as well as SO15 (the Metropolitan Police Counter Terror Unit) attends over 2,500 suspect devices, WWII bombs, and terrorist situations in the United Kingdom each year. A fact little known by the general public.
This group of people are on call 24/7 to assist the emergency services with such events: the men and women of the EOD community are continually on the front line protecting the country. You rarely see or hear of their contribution but members of specialist military EOD units and SO15 – the Metropolitan Police Counter Terror Unit – play a pivotal role in exploiting and, where possible, preventing terrorist attacks.
This continued exposure to highly stressful situations can have a lasting effect both physically and mentally on individuals. Felix Fund – the bomb disposal charity supports these brave professionals by providing much needed welfare support and financial assistance.
