Chemical Threat Detection, Transportation Security, and CBRN First Responder Training

The United States is conducting a series of chemical detection, transportation security, and response trainings to strengthen the capabilities of African and Southeast Asian partners to identify and effectively respond to chemical terrorism threats. Specific project activities and capacity building objectives include:

  1. Empowering African and Southeast Asian law enforcement and other members of the first responder community to assess and mitigate the effects of chemical weapons incidents;
  2. Linking country partners with international experts on ground transportation security, including rail police and CBRN first responders, to raise awareness of chemical threats to transportation targets and best practices for mitigating these threats;
  3. Establishing effective modes of communication and coordination for incident command response among law enforcement and first responder entities within partner countries; and
  4. Building the capabilities of first responders to use chemical weapons-related personal protective equipment (PPE), detection systems, decontamination materials, and sampling gear to protect responding units and collect relevant information.
