Happy Friday the 13th! We aren’t superstitious....well, maybe just a bit...but on a day known for bad luck, we’d rather be very good at what we do, rather than just lucky.
So then, the question that is always asked...do we cut the red wire, or the blue?? The movie industry would have you believe it’s merely a last minute guess to beat the timer. In reality, the task of having to manually disable a device, while not a frequent occurrence by any means, is potentially one of the most hazardous scenarios a Bomb Technician could ever expect to face.
That is why, at the @ocsheriff Bomb Squad, we don’t just train to the task, we train beyond it....by completing our training in gas masks, in the dark, upside down....yes, we actually do. Because it’s always better to be precise and proficient in your skill sets in any environment rather than just lucky, no matter what day of the week it is.
