Solomon Islands Police warn communities of bomb blast

The Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Team will conduct a live demolition of bombs at Hells Point, in the Alligator Creek East of Honiara on Friday 25 January 2019.

Supervising Officer In-charge (OIC) of EOD, Senior Sergeant Peter Ririvere says, “The Hells Point Demolition Range in Central Guadalcanal area will be active from 8 am to 12 midday, 25 January 2019.”

He adds: “Fishermen, farmers, hunters and the general public in the Henderson area, Alligator Creek and Tenaru School areas are kindly warned to keep out from Hells Point while the Operation is in progress.”

“This is a normal EOD task aimed to reduce the amount of Unexploded Ordnances stored at the site to a minimum level,” says Mr Ririvere.

He says, “The Air Traffic Control Tower at Honiara International Airport will coordinate the firing of each serial. No serial is to be fired without specific air clearance and permission from Honiara Air Traffic Control Tower.”

“An EOD Operator/Technician from the RSIPF EOD Team will be posted at the control tower during this operation from the actual times of the Demolition and completion time,” says Supervising OIC EOD Ririvere.
