Fire Marshal’s show off some new Robots.

Pictured left Captain Brandon Ball top Lieutenant Thomas Bosco 

State Fire Marshal’s Captain Brandon Ball and Lieutenant Thomas “Tommy” Bosco show off some of their new equipment at Berkley Charter Elementary School on Tuesday the 16, 2010.  It’s clear by Balls interaction with the kids that he loves the opportunity to show the youngsters equipment that he uses in his job. Both Ball and Bosco are Bomb Technicians as well as Fire Investigators with The Florida State Fire Marshals Satellite Office in Lake Wales. Pictured Ball, along with Bosco explains what the Robots are used for and shows off the newest addition to the office a $67000.00 ICOR Caliber E.O.D. (Explosive-Ordinance-Disposal) Robot. It is smaller than the previous one, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in features. This unit comes with 4 remotely activated cameras, 2 functional arms; one is a weapons platform for destructing explosives, and the other a working claw for picking items up and moving them around. It also has two way communications, with a microphone for listening and a speaker for communicating with possible suspects, often used by S.W.A.T. Teams. The unit can travel up to 5mph and takes less than 10 minutes to deploy as it is stored and transported in a Ford Excursion. 

Ball says they respond to several requests a month in the local area for assistance, as well as being a member of Tampa Bay Regional Bomb Squad, which also includes Tampa Police Dept. and Hillsborough County Sheriffs Dept.

                Capt. Ball said they often do these demonstrations and welcome agencies request for them. This helps show what resources are available in the event they are needed.
