Supervising Officer In-charge (OIC) of EOD, Staff Sergeant Peter Ririvere says, “The Hells Point Demolition Range will be active from 8am to 12 mid-day from 21 to 23 April 2021.”
Staff Sergeant Ririvere says, “Fishermen, farmers, hunters and the general public in the Henderson, Alligator Creek and Tenaru School areas are warned to keep out from Hells Point while the Operation is in progress.”
