It was demonstrated how firefighters prepare for and safely detonate a variety of explosive devices in high-stress scenarios.

Shon Saucedo, the head of the bomb squad and chief of investigations, said that, despite the dangers of the real scene, days like today can be enjoyable for his team.

A person must perform the entire bomb-suit-to-firing process today, according to Saucedo. Our work relies heavily on all of those factors. Even though there’s a great deal of danger involved, there’s a certain amount of excitement in that.”

LVFR is Southern Nevada’s sole public safety agency with a bomb squad.
