We really love it when our members send us stuff for The Detonator! Articles about training, recent call-outs or pictures of your Squad are always welcome. If you've used a new tool or discovered a novel use for an old tool ~ we'd like to share your story with the other members of our Association.

We prefer to receive submissions electronically but will attempt accommodate any format you choose to use.

Please review our Guidelines for Contributors for more information about sending in your articles and pictures. We look forward to hearing from you and, remember, pictures are worth a thousand words so just sending us a picture with a brief caption is a great idea too!
