Meet The Bomb Squad


Lee County Sheriff’s Community Response Crime Prevention Practitioner Tiffany Wood will be at The Fort Myers Beach Woman’s Club Wednesday night at 6:30. She’ll be bringing a bomb squad robot and a bomb-sniffing dog.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad responds to calls around the county where are explosives are believed to be present. The robots are remote controlled and equipped with cameras and a water cannon.

Bomb dogs are specially trained to sniff out explosive devices in the event a bomb robot is not available, the dogs are also used at large events.

The bomb squad will be giving Women’s Club demonstrations of both the robots and the dogs at work.
