Objective: Provide law enforcement or tactical response team with training on equipment and tactics needed to safely respond to and operate in an environment involving the terrorist use of a weapons of mass destruction —chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear weapon.
The course covers a general awareness of chemical, biological, and radiological and explosive (CBRNe) hazards, as viewed by the tactical team. Additional focus is placed on the crisis resolution for improvised and clandestine laboratories and force protection options, while operations in a CBRNe environment.
One of the main objectives of this course is to utilize or develop each teams Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s). Additional topics covered will be self, hasty, and emergency decontamination, first aid in a hazardous environment, tactical considerations, and officer safety issues in dealing with a small or large scale WMD event.
This is an intense course of practical application and scenario-based training. At the conclusion of the course students will be able to recognize WMD threats, choose the protective equipment for their mission profile, and safely execute their mission objectives in a hazardous environment. They will also be able to provide emergency decontamination, mitigation and stabilization of the incident. The culminating event for this course is a full-scale exercise designed to reinforce lessons learned throughout the week. Strong emphasis on interactive and practical exercises. Simulations are an important part of the course. We ensure a challenging but safe learning environment.
