  4. Squads train for detonating suspicious objectsRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 9, 2016 | The Chronicle-Telegram

    CARLISLE TWP. - A Lincoln Town Car and multiple pieces of luggage were blown to smithereens Wednesday by the assembled members of a half-dozen local bomb squads. The members came together as part of their quarterly training on how to deal with suspicious packages and vehicles so if they encounter them they know how to handle the situation. "It's just to get the squads familiar with how to build certain devices to render safe a suspicious package or one that may have something in it," Lorain County sheriff's Sgt. Randal Koubeck, who commands the county bomb squad, said after a fake pipe bomb was blasted out of a red backpack filled with clothes. The idea of bomb technicians isn't always the Hollywood image of a man nervously snipping a red or blue wire as seconds count down to a possible explosion. In many cases, the idea is simply to use a controlled detonation to destroy a potential bomb. For that, water proves to be a useful tool. A number of the charges built by the bomb squads used water to blast open a suitcase, or in one instance, to punch a hole through the roof of the Town Car that had been seized by the Lorain County Drug Task Force during one of its investigations. "We try to use the water to control the direction of travel," Koubeck said. "It can be used as a cutting tool." The power of the bombs used in the controlled detonations is impressive and destructive at the same time. A small bomb weighing just over a pound blew apart the back of the Lincoln on Wednesday. Marc Davis, a Richmond Heights police officer who commands the Suburban Police Anticrime Network's bomb squad, said that's nothing compared to the power of a car bomb the military might encounter in Afghanistan that are often packed with hundreds of pounds of explosives. "This is the time for us to learn how to use these tools," Koubeck said. "What's good and what's bad." Rocky River police Sgt. Ken Thompson, who runs the Westshore Enforcement Bureau's bomb squad, one of six such units in Cuyahoga County, said that although blowing things up can be fun, it's also serious business. Every bomb technician in the country goes through the same rigorous training put on by the FBI and once trained must keep up with their certification and undergo additional 40 hours of training each year to continue to do the job. That training, plus the sometimes-intense situations they find themselves in, means the bomb technicians end up being a close community, Thompson said. "We share responsibilities. We share jobs. We share everything," he said. It's not always dealing with explosives or suspicious packages, though. Davis said many of the 15 or so calls a year his agency deals with are to dispose of old military ammunition. Koubeck said that same thing happens in Lorain County. For instance, while the training was going on Wednesday, two of his bomb squad members had to go to a woman's home to collect gunpowder from her late husband's black powder rifles for disposal. Examining the wreckage of the Lincoln at the end of the training, sheriff's Capt. Jim Drozdowski, who serves on the Drug Task Force, said the training was essential to being prepared not only for the upcoming Republican National Convention in Cleveland, but for anything else that might happen now or in the future. "It's scary what you can do," he said as the bomb technicians examined the charred and twisted metal that only a few moments before had been a car's trunk. The post Squads train for detonating suspicious objects appeared first on Chronicle-Telegram.
