Cambodian continues moving toward Secure Munitions Storage

After the stockpile management refresher course held in January 2015, the Golden West Project Manager for Physical Security & Stockpile Management (PSSM) & his counterpart from the Ministry of National Defence paid visits to units around Cambodia to follow-up on the principles of safe ammunition storage practices that were taught during the weeklong course. During his travels to the provinces, including Battambang, Preah Vihear and Ream, the management team met with members of the Army, Navy and Air Force and toured their munition storage facilities. The goal of these visits was to assess the implementation of PSSM best practices so far, and advise on further improvements. During these visits Mr. Moroney (GWHF PM) & Lt Gen Son Kimsorn presented several of the munition storage facilities with much needed fire extinguishers donated through the US State Department PM/WRA grant. RCAF plays a critical part in supplying unusable munitions to the Golden West Explosive Harvesting Program which has to date produced over 360,000 humanitarian demining charges which have been used across Cambodia.
