Guam - During today's public safety meeting they discussed formulating the standard operating procedures and guidelines when dealing with the transportation of explosives to Guam and surrounding islands. They are working with local and federal agencies to develop these guidelines.

Public Safety Advisor Eric Palacios said, "Several factors prompted this discussion, not the least of which is the military buildup we anticipate there will be the importation and exportation of large quantity of munitions. We are definitely concerned about it especially when these explosive ammunitions are transported from Point A to Point B."

Palacios adds the SOPs will ensure the transportation of explosives are safe, adding they are also working with the Guam National Guard on the matter.
