Interim Risk Management

In the interest of public safety, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is conducting Interim Risk Management (IRM) at Formerly Used Defense Sites (FUDS) through its Notification and Safety Education initiative. Under this initiative, landowners have received mailings informing them their land is part of a FUDS and about the hazards that may remain on the property. 

The goal of IRM is to educate landowners, government officials and others about how to reduce risks from hazards that may remain from DOD's use of a property. IRM activities are being conducted in accordance with Department of Defense Instruction 4715.07 Defense Environmental Restoration Program and DOD Interim Risk Management (IRM) Procedures.

The Department of Defense and the Corps of Engineers are committed to protecting human health and the environment by identifying, evaluating and, when appropriate, responding to environmental contamination created by DOD activities or facilities.

 

Safety is a Priority

Follow the 3Rs of Explosives Safety if you suspect you may have come across a military munition.

Recognize – when you may have come across a munition, and that munitions are dangerous;
Retreat – do not approach, touch, move, or disturb it, but carefully leave the area.
Report – call 911 and advise the police of what you saw and where you saw it.

Additional information about the 3Rs of Explosives Safety is available from the DOD's 3Rs of Explosives Safety website. The website, which provides information about munitions, contains downloadable educational material such as fact sheets, safety guides and coloring books. You can share the 3Rs educational materials with your children, family members, friends, tenants, employees and others who should know about explosives safety.
