On Tuesday, the General Staff of the Polish Army reminded on social media the rules of conduct in the event of finding unexploded ordnance.

The military warned that if an unexploded ordnance, an unexploded bomb or an object of unknown origin is found, “do not touch, move or move the found explosive object.”

“Immediately leave the place of danger. Immediately notify the Police by phone, who will check whether the found item is explosive and dangerous, notify the military unit about this fact and secure the place until the mine patrol arrives,” we read in the entry on the X portal.

People were also reminded to inform the Police (tel. 997 or 112) to precisely specify the location of the find, describe what was found, what it looks like, what its dimensions are, how many unexploded ordnance or unexploded bombs were found, and leave a telephone contact number.

Warning of the General Staff regarding unexploded ordnance

“Found unexploded ordnance or unexploded bombs must not be lifted, dug out, moved, or thrown into fire or into places such as ponds, lakes or ditches!” – emphasized the military.

They added that it should be remembered and known that sappers patrol cars are emergency vehicles used for special tasks. With such vehicles, the patrol, after picking up the unexploded bomb, transports it to the destruction area, i.e. a special place adapted for the destruction of this type of objects on a military training ground.

“You should be aware that explosives used in military technology are, in practice, completely resistant to weather conditions and, regardless of the date of production, retain their explosive properties,” the release added.
