If This Is an EmergencyIf you have found something that might be an unexploded device:
- Don't touch or disturb it in any way.
- Note the location of the object and leave the area.
- Call your local emergency number (in most cases this will be 9-1-1), and ask for the police. Do not use a cell phone near UXO; the cell phone may cause it to explode.
- Report what you have found, and where you found it.
- Follow any instructions you may be given by the police.
