K9 EXPLOSIVE DETECTION TRAINING KITS
HME IMPRINTING FOR K9
The most common weapon being utilized by criminals and terrorists throughout the world is improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that contain improvised (homemade) explosives. As a first responder, you are increasingly more likely to encounter this type of hazard while responding to a critical incident. This course will provide you with the basic information required to keep you and your team safe. Students will learn to identify basic improvised explosives, identify chemical precursors and equipment used in the illicit manufacture of improvised explosives, the hazards associated with each precursor, safe-handling techniques, and general safety precautions. Students will be safely exposed to live improvised explosive formulations, including several peroxide based mixtures such as TATP & HMTD, which were used in recent attacks in Europe.
Extremist and terrorist employment of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) has increased the importance of a First Responder’s working knowledge of explosives and explosive devices. As the name implies, First Responders are simultaneously the personnel most threatened by, and best positioned to, identify IEDs. This training is designed to provide the necessary knowledge for First Responders to not only identify potential explosive threats, but also to identify the key components utilized in the illicit manufacture of these dangerous weapons. Attendees will participate in classroom lecture and practical labs designed to enhance their understanding of how IEDs function and practical exercises focusing on the identification of an array of IEDs, their components, and triggering mechanisms.
This course is designed for first responder personnel desiring specialized training in the recognition and identification of military ordnance. Participants will be provided with comprehensive training through a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on activities designed to increase knowledge and response capabilities of state, local, and federal emergency responders. Topics covered include: explosives and explosive effects, ordnance safety, identification and characteristics (grenades, landmines, sub-munitions, projectiles and mortars, projectile fuses, rockets, guided missiles, bomb fuses, aircraft bombs, dispensers, dispenser sub-munitions, pyrotechnics, chemical agents and compounds, chemical ordnance), fuse functioning and identification, key identification features, ordnance color coding, potential hazards & associated safeties, unexploded ordnance (UXO) reporting, firing devices, other explosive devices, and miscellaneous hazards, and UXO disposal techniques.
