Training Videos for CBRNE Professionals
Published: 1 October 2017 - Sarah Mead
FLIR Systems announces a new and highly informative CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive materials) training video series - FLIR PRIMED.
FLIR PRIMED videos are a free, educational resource designed to provide first responders and security professionals with best practices for HAZMAT accidents and CBRNE attacks.
Throughout the video series, Grant Coffey, a retired Fire & Rescue Hazmat Team Coordinator and CBRNE expert of nearly 40 years, delivers best practices, industry insights, and street truth. In addition, each video concludes with a field checklist that responders can use right now. The videos are available now for viewing at www.flir.co.uk/PRIMED
For example: FLIR PRIMED episode 1 introduces the video series and the importance of CBRNE best practice using the Prepare, Recognise, Input, Monitor, Experience and Decision methodology.
FLIR PRIMED episode 4 focuses on Explosives 101. Explosives are one of the weapons of choice for terrorists. They are easy to make and easy to trigger. This episode discusses the key actions and considerations at an explosive scene.
FLIR PRIMED episode 5 discusses Bio-Agents. Biological agents are some of the most toxic substances known to man. But unlike other agents, their effects are usually delayed and can spread like wildfire unseen. This episode covers appropriate personal protective equipment and what actions to take at a suspected bio-threat scene.
Moving forward, every two months, new FLIR PRIMED videos will be available describing best practices, industry insights, and real-life experiences to help you stay prepared. Each episode will be accompanied by a field checklist or downloadable guide that you can use right now.
