To request hard copies of the material provided in the School Zone or to find out more about our school program, please contact us.

If you see something that could be UXO:

1. Don't touch it!
Make sure that you don’t get close to it. Tell your friends to leave it alone - and tell them why. Don’t touch it, move it, or throw things at it.

2. Leave the area
Remember where you saw the object and go back the same way you came.

3. Call 9-1-1 or local police.
As soon as possible, tell an adult, call 9-1-1 or contact local police.
