The Charleston County Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad is made up of both full time and part time members. The members of the Squad under go almost two years of extensive in house and school training before they are bomb technicians. During those two years members must attend the IFFA's Hazardous Materials Technicians Course, as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation Hazardous Devices School, in Redstone Arsenal Alabama.
The Bomb Squad has two fully equipped response vehicles. These vehicles contain state of the art diagnostic and render safe equipment, including two ANDROS Robots. These robots allow the technicians to operate in dangerous environments, while maintain a safe distance.
The Bomb Squad augments the Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) Team as one of SWAT's five Elements. As a SWAT Element the Bomb Squad manages and deploys all special munitions, conducts robot operations, and acts as a breaching element employing both mechanical and explosive techniques.
In addition, the Bomb Squad provides technical advice on Federal explosives storage regulations and destruction as well as instruction for Federal, State and local law enforcement.
