    Default School Scares

    Our department has also been a victim of the recent school scares. On Friday, April the 29th, we responded to one of our Jr. highs and were asked to help search for a possible bomb. We are not formally trained in this area and actually feel very uncomfortable doing it. Besides, they are putting the guys who are there to control any possible explosion inside the structure away from their equipment and apparatus. Any comments or suggestions, please email me at jshipler@gte.net

    If your not properly trained in detection STAY OUT. The police or local miltary have the means to get trained people there to do the proper searches. Stage equipment and manpower at a remote local and standby, until you have to respond (hopefully not) or released. Remember your radios could cause an early explosion.
