The Cedar Rapids Hazardous Devices Unit collaborated with the Prairie High School Manufacturing Technology class to create a display piece for Linn County. Students in the Manufacturing Tech class were given a retired bomb suit and charged with the task of creating a stand. Once completed, the suit will be displayed as a museum piece at the Cedar Rapids Police Department.
While designing and creating the stand, the Hazardous Devices Unit brought out their trailer of equipment and did a presentation for the class. Students were able to try on the bomb suit and learn about the different roles of this unit.
