Recognizing the HME Threat

This course is designed to provide the student with the necessary information to recognize the precursors and production methods used in the development of Homemade Explosives. HME labs can be deceptively similar to clandestine drug labs but the misidentification can be fatal. In this course the student is introduced to the similarities and significant difference in these production facilities. They are also instructed in the proper procedures to follow in the event this type of facility is encountered.
Also included in this training are examples of biological labs, chemical weapons labs, and NIED production locations. The students are given examples of each lab, their precursors, and the proper response for each situation.
