Good Eggs: Prince George's County Bomb Squad Makes Easter Eggs For Visually-Impaired Children ... - NBC Washington



A Maryland bomb squad is serving as the Easter Bunny for visually impaired children this year, infusing a set of Easter eggs with technology that will let them join the holiday hunt.

Prince George’s County Bomb Squad drill members and bomb techs used their expertise this week to make 48 beeping Easter eggs for visually impaired children.

Kids in a typical Easter egg hunt rely on their eyes to find the goodies, but since these eggs trigger their hearing, the visually impaired will be able them.

The eggs were specially made to allow for multiple uses and rough handling.

“Whenever I think about the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department Bomb Squad I envision our members with nerves of steel, skilled hands, quick thinkers, patience and focused vision to the task at hand,” Chief Spokesperson Mark Brady said. “I see the large protective suits, robots and portable x-ray machines being used to render safe a suspicious package. Our Bomb Squad is all that and much more but above all they are compassionate humans that began their careers as firefighters.”

The plastic eggs and their components were donated by the International Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators. 

The completed beeping eggs were donated to the “Vision Program,” part of Prince George's County Public Schools' Department of Special Education.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
