Florida Bomb Squad Builds Beeping Easter Eggs for Blind Children to Hunt

March 28, 2016  | 

The Tampa Bay Area Regional Bomb Squad built special Easter eggs so that local children who are blind or visually impaired could enjoy an Easter egg hunt this weekend.

Members of the state Fire Marshal's office, FBI, ATF, Tampa Police Department and Hillsborough County Sheriff's bomb squad worked together to build the beeping Easter eggs.

The eggs contain batteries and speakers that help blind children during egg hunts by leading them to the more traditional eggs.

Members of the bomb squad said assembling the eggs actually helps with their training but the real reason they make them is to give back to the community, ABC57 reports.

Great example of thinking outside the box and helping the community! Hey Percy, where are your foul comments about LEOs on this one? Are you upset that they promote a "Christian Holiday" or some other imbicilic reason? Once again COPs do the right thing and even go beyond what they are expected to do, thanks for the good publicity officers!

I am the executive Director for a Washington based center for people who are blind and visually impaired. We are planning on doing one of these events locally next year. The local bomb squad has expressed interest in participating in making the eggs. How do I get in touch with Tampa Bay Area Regional Bomb Squad to get a copy of their plans for making the eggs?
