Jones earns new certification

Steve Jones, emergency services coordinator for Lawrence County, recently attended an Initial Response to Terrorist Bombing course held at the Energetic Material Research and Testing Center in Socorro, N. M.

The course was designed for first responders who may respond to incidents involving explosives. During the course, participants were taught to identify commercial and military explosives, improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and explosive formulations that are readily available for terrorists to use.

The course included classroom presentations, field laboratories and practical exercises. Three different field laboratories allowed students to observe and handle explosives. The laboratories also allowed students to see the damaging results of explosives. Sessions included various labs that taught students about specific types of explosives.

Jones was certified to the technical/operations level. He is now qualified to teach an Initial Response to Terrorist Bombing course on explosive devices that could be used as terrorist weapons.
