Critical Incident Response Technology Seminars
In 2006, three Critical Incident Response Technology Seminars were held at locations throughout the Unites States to bring together various subject matter experts and bomb technicians. At these seminars, participants attended lectures on threat and technology issues relating to IEDs, VBIEDs, and suicide bombers and then participated in exercises simulating emerging threat situations. Self-evaluation critiques at the end of each day assisted in identifying shortfalls in technical and tactical capabilities to address these new threats. Currently, certified bomb technicians can register for future seminars on the National Bomb Squad Commanders Advisory Board Web site at http://www.nbscab.org.
