Moody Airmen Train with New Vehicle for EOD Missions

Members of the 23rd Civil Engineer Squadron explosive ordnance disposal flight at Moody AFB, Ga., have been training this month with a new, four-wheeled Bomb Squad Emergency Response Vehicle designed to help them rapidly respond to incidents at or near the base. “The BSERV is very spacious and allows us to travel with all of our equipment, preventing any delay when we get a call,” said SrA. Daniel Esselstrom, 23rd CES EOD technician. He continued, “Previously, we’d have to go and grab the equipment specific to the situation, such as aircraft incident kits or improvised explosive device response kits. Now, we can respond immediately.” The 36-foot-long vehicle has a rear camera, lights, sirens, an intercom, a fire extinguisher, and a spacious work area. It is also in use at other Air Combat Command bases. (Moody report by A1C Brigitte N. Brantley-Sisk)
