Prevention of and Response to Suicide Bombing Incidents (PRSBI) in Socorro, New Mexico

Chief J. Carmen, Lieutenant D. Wallace, Full-Time EMT J. McCully, Full-Time EMT C. Eno and Volunteer EMT A. Englander spent the past week in Socorro, New Mexico attending the "Prevention Of and Response to Suicide Bombing Incidents" class held by New Mexico Tech and the Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center. The PRSBI course is a five-day, train the trainer program which is sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), a division of the Department Of Homeland Security. The class is designed for first responders who may respond to or become involved in suicide terrorist attacks.

The training involved learning the knowledge and skill for developing policies, procedures, training and operational capabilities to deter, prevent, interdict, respond to, and mitigate the effects of a suicide bombing. Along with the abilities and techniques in being able to recognize and identify various types of homemade explosive devices (HME's) and their components as well as readily available explosive formulations that terrorists may possess or could use to perpetrate a terrorist attack. The training also taught the ability to safely and effectively respond to an array of pre-detonation, post-detonation and continuing explosive incidents.
The training consisted of classroom presentations, live performance exercises and live field laboratories.

At the completion of the training and testing yesterday morning Chief Carmen, Lt. Wallace and EMT's McCully, Eno and Englander graduated the course to become certified Instructors for the Prevention of and Response to Suicide Bombing Incidents 4 hour awareness level program as administered by New Mexico Institute Of Mining and Technology.

We would like to thank FEMA, New Mexico Tech, EMRTC, the town and citizens of Socorro, New Mexico, our classmates, project manager Michael Hawkes and the instructors for everything involved in making this opportunity possible.
