Police bomb squads have found the Segway PT to be an invaluable tool for more than 10 years.
J.W. Ledbetter, Former Executive Director of Mississippi OHS, said "The primary benefit of the Segway PT is that it allows the bomb technician examining a potentially explosive device to get in and out quickly. We are talking about potential life and death situations. This is especially important since they are wearing heavy, cumbersome, protection equipment and clothing that makes walking slow and strenuous. The Segway PT will enable easy access and hopefully prevent loss of lives and injuries.”
