The current trend across the United States is the occurrence of poly-labs, or single labs that involve multiple illicit manufacturing processes including drugs, explosives, chemical agents, and/or biological agents. This 8-hour workshop will help prepare responders and investigators to conduct an all-hazard risk-based response to a clandestine lab emergency.
Training topics will include identifying multiple lab types by the hardware, processes, and pre-cursors and then recognizing the hazards and risks associated with the processes, regardless of threat material. Students will practice updated sampling techniques and walk-through rendering safe representative clandestine labs. Attendees will receive an updated threat briefing on the current materials of interest to domestic extremist and terrorist organizations.
