Guam – The suspicious package found in Agat Marina on Tuesday was a training device — used by the Guam Fire Department for instructional purposes — that was not properly disposed of.
“We apologize for the inconvenience caused to the community and will immediately address the issue internally to ensure accountability for the handling, storage and disposal of all training aids of the Guam Fire Department,” GFD spokesman Kevin Reily said.
GFD’s procedures and protocols for dealing with a live ordnance were initiated after the department receiving a call about the package found at 8 a.m. Tuesday in Agat Marina. The area was quickly evacuated and emergency response agencies were activated.
Guam Police Department Spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao said the device was found by a GFD employee.
