A  trained bomb squad conspired to make a happy Easter for blind children.

A group of technicians at the Prince George’s County Fire Department worked this week to create Easter eggs that were wired to beep so that blind children could hunt for them.

The eggs, which were made with material donated from the International Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators, were built to withstand rough handling and be used more than one time.

“It was a drill that goes over basic electronics and allows me and the bomb techs to enhance our skills,” Captain Shajahan Jagtiani told the Washington Post. “Putting the eggs together, it is also something bigger than us.”

The Tampa Bay Area Regional Bomb Squad contributed in a similar hunt benefiting local blind children on Saturday.
