Moore contacted the 142 nd Oregon Air Guard EOD unit in Portland. On April 9th, two members of the Explosives Ordinance Division (EOD) unit responded to our area and disposed of the flare at a safe location.    The Coos County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public that if they find such items, please leave them in place and contact the authorities so they can be properly handled and disposed of.                              Click Here To Download Our Ap
