Fort Myers Police Department gets MRAP
FORT MYERS - The Fort Myers Police Department has joined numerous agencies across the country by adding a new tool to help protect citizens and officers during high-risk situations. Fort Myers police officers are now behind the wheel of an armored vehicle that was once used by the U.S. Army. On Thursday, officers showed off the new equipment typically seen in a warzone. It's called an MRAP and is also known as the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Tanker. Army soldiers used the vehicle in combat in Afghanistan. But on Thursday, Fort Myers officers are using it on our city streets. "We could save lives with the piece of apparatus," said Lt. Jeff Bernice with the Fort Myers Police Department. It's meant for hostage or barricaded situations, even natural disasters. "If we get an area of the city that's flooded, we can drive this guy right in there," said Sgt. Sean Hoover with the Fort Myers Police Department. We took a look inside and took the MRAP for a test drive. It fits 11 people and can only reach speeds of 60 miles per hour. So how much is it costing you? The department recently took possession of the MRAP through the 10-33 program offered by the federal government. This program allows the Department of Defense to transfer excess military equipment to law enforcement at little to no cost. Fort Myers taxpayers shelled out just $3,400; which is a steal because the original sticker price is $750,000. "The amount of costs that we purchased this vehicle for is probably the amount we would spend to upkeep the old one," said Hoover. It should last the Fort Myers Police Department about 15 years and keep officers safe from violent criminals. "It could sustain handgun, rifle and all the way up to rocket propeller grenades," said Bernice. MRAP already served the community. In April the SWAT team used it during this hostage situation on Winkler Avenue. "It's intimidating. It looks like it's ready to knock down buildings," said resident Manual Vazquez. Vazquez is relieved MRAP is on city streets, but only wants to see it when it's needed. "It's not very good on mileage," said Hoover. The MRAP will be assisting police in a wide variety of endeavors to include, but not limited to, various critical incidents such as natural disasters, HAZMAT, active shooter calls as well as hostage and rescue situations.Subcribe on my channel

Glen Canyon Dam
Glen Canyon Dam is a concrete arch dam on the Colorado River in northern Arizona in the United States, near the town of Page. The dam was built to provide hydroelectricity and flow regulation from the upper Colorado River Basin to the lower. Its reservoir is called Lake Powell, and is the second-largest artificial lake in the country, extending upriver well into Utah. The dam is named for Glen Canyon, a colorful series of gorges, most of which now lies under the reservoir. The dam was proposed in the 1950s as part of the Colorado River Storage Project, a U.S. Bureau of Reclamation federal water project that would develop reservoir storage on the upper Colorado River and several of its major tributaries. The project's main purpose was to provide water storage to ensure the delivery of sufficient water to the lower basin during years of drought, so as to allow the upper basin to better utilize its allocation of river flow as designated in the 1922 Colorado River Compact. However, problems arose when the USBR proposed to build dams in the federally protected Echo Park canyon in Utah. After extensive policy disputes and legal challenges with environmental organizations such as the Sierra Club, they settled for a high dam at Glen Canyon. This video is targeted to blind users.
