Sailors with one of the most dangerous jobs in the world will be at the Imagination Station today doing demonstrations.
This is all part of Navy Week here in the Glass City. They will be showing off 85 pound bomb suit as well as the bomb disposal robots that are used in places like Iraq and Afghanistan.
"Our first option is always the robot, but when that isn't enough we will suit up and do the job," said Senior Chief Ken Englenhart.
Toledo Navy Week is August 20-27. Toledo is one of 15 selected cities where Americaâ??s Navy give area residents an opportunity to meet Sailors and learn about the Navyâ??s capabilities and relevance to national security.
There will be activities all week at the Imagination Station.
Toledo Navy Week will commemorate the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 and The Star Spangled Banner with U.S. Navy ship visits, and special events recognizing Americaâ??s Navy for keeping the sea free for more than 200 years.
