Brief Overview:

DAY ONE: The Homemade Explosives: Awareness, Recognition, and Response course is designed to provide emergency first responders with the knowledge and skills necessary to recognize and respond to incidents involving Homemade Explosives (HME). Emergency first responders are presented with information on the identification of HME explosive precursor chemicals, HME manufacturing indicators, HME exposure indicators, and pre-detonation and post-detonation response actions. Throughout this course, emergency first responders discuss how to implement safe response strategies when recognizing the presence of HME indicators; understanding these response actions is critical to mitigating the hazards associated with HME.

DAY TWO: The Initial Law Enforcement Response to Suicide Bombing Attacks course is designed to provide law enforcement officers with information on how to effectively interdict and respond to an imminent person-borne or vehicle-borne suicide bombing attack. The course provides participants with information on the tactics, techniques and procedures used by suicide bombers, safety considerations and response considerations relative to improvised explosive devices, and interdiction strategies for law enforcement officers.

Training will also include case studies on the 2016 New York/New Jersey bombings and other bombing incidents.
