VIDEO: Responding to hundreds of calls every year, using the latest and greatest tools and technology, the team is able to detect and get rid of deadly devices within the community. They are a dynamite team serving all of southern Nevada. “We are a full-time bomb squad,” said chief of fire investigations for the city of Las Vegas and bomb squad Shon Saucedo. And that is not all. “We do wear a second hat as fire investigators for the city of Las Vegas,” said Saucedo. The team is made up of 13 certified FBI bomb techs that all went to the same hazardous device school in Alabama, always willing and ready to respond. “When it comes to the public safety bomb squads is all the types of devices we look at, they are all improvised devices so that is our specialty,” said Saucedo.
