HOMEMADE EXPLOSIVE AWARENESS
INCLUDES HME IMPRINTING FOR K9 TEAMS
One Day Course
Tripwire Gettysburg - 1685 Baltimore Pike, Gettysburg, PA, USA
This course is for active Law Enforcement / Explosive Detection K9 Teams / Fire Department Personnel
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. Attendees will witness first-hand, the sensitivity and destructive power of improvised explosives, how to safely operate while mixtures are present, and methods of desensitization. Finally, K9 teams will have the opportunity to imprint on all freshly made materials from class and participate in search scenarios involving live HME.
