FBI Chemical Industry Outreach Explosives Workshop

Category: Conferences and Events

The FBI is hosting a free training workshop on improvised explosives and threat awareness on Wednesday, August 14th, from 8:00am to 5:00pm at the Fort Custer Training Center in Battle Creek.

This training is intended for anyone with an interest in the threat posed by improvised explosives, including private industry, law enforcement, fire service, and emergency management.

This training is hosted by FBI-Detroit in conjunction with the FBI Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate and the FBI Laboratory.  Attendees will receive lectures in the morning on current WMD threats and the emerging threat posed by improvised explosives.  After lunch, students will witness a demonstration involving detonation of a variety of improvised explosives and incendiaries, most of which can be mixed using common household chemicals.  This demonstration is designed to underscore the potential danger of these chemicals, both in the hands of terrorists as well as juvenile experimenters.   

For further information and to reserve your seat at this event, please contact Mark E. Davidson at 586.530.5206 or at [email protected]. Seating is limited.
