The Tahoe-Douglas Fire Protection District in conjunction with the
Douglas County Sheriff’s Office operates and maintains the
Tahoe Douglas Bomb Squad to provide a rapidly deployed,
front-line response to incidents involving bombs, suspected bombs,
explosives, shock sensitive materials, weapons of mass destruction,
and accidental explosions.
In addition to their explosive related training, the squad members have
a wide range of professional experience that include firefighting,
emergency medicine, hazardous materials and criminal investigation.
Members of the squad are trained to neutralize explosive related
incidents in a wide variety of situations.
The Bomb Squad provides these services consistent with
currently accepted practices.
While the Bomb Squad primarily provides services to the citizens and
businesses of Douglas County, services are also provided under contract
to neighboring cities and law enforcement agencies.
