Coming, Winter 2018!
The Bomb Tech Experience is a unique experiential team-building service that not only teaches your employees what to do if they are ever faced with an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), but gives them a chance to spend a day facing real-world scenarios where they get to feel the adrenaline rush of what it is like to be a bomb technician. During the time spent with us, your employees will get to learn about IEDs, wear a bomb suit, take and interpret x-rays of potential devices, analyze IED circuits to formulate a render safe procedure, and defuze simulated devices such as suicide vests and car bombs. All team members are guaranteed to be challenged, and all scenarios and activities will be video-taped, and pictures taken during key moments for those wanting bragging rights later.
Our scenarios put employees in situations where a number of team-building skills are used. These include:
- Identifying tasks appropriate to individual skills
- Brainstorming strategies and solutions
- Drawing consensus around goals and strategies
- Identifying the strengths and weaknesses of individual team members
- Recognizing and rewarding group achievements
- Cultivating positive group leadership
- Adapting to changing circumstances
- Problem solving
- Critical thinking
- Decision Making
This is how it works...experienced bomb technicians, with numerous real-world incidents under their belts, will come to your facility, or the place of your choice, and set up a day of education, training, and exercises for your team. First, they will provide your employees with an overview of what constitutes an IED, what the potential hazards are associated with suspect devices, and some of the basic procedures used in IED response. Next, your team will be equipped with the same tools and equipment that bomb technicians use every day, and will be given a series of scenarios to work through as a team, where they will be required to defuze devices encountered. Working as a team, they will be required to decide what kind of device it is, how it functions, and what needs to be done to render safe the device. The team will even have to decide who the person is who will get to "cut the red wire!"
