FBI Guam: Preparing for Threats Posed by Improvised Explosives and Potentially Dangerous Chemicals

TAMUNING—The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is offering specialized training to provide advanced understanding of the hazards posed by improvised explosives and potentially dangerous chemicals.

The “Chemical Industry Outreach Workshop” is intended for both Guam and CNMI public safety officials, law enforcement partners, and people who work in the chemical industry. This includes suppliers of pool chemicals, beauty supplies, and home improvement materials.

The workshop will include a classroom presentation and an outdoor explosive demonstration on the effects of conventional and improvised explosives. The training will underscore the potential dangers of particular chemicals, both in the hands of terrorists as well as juvenile experimenters.

The one-day workshop will be offered on both Wednesday, August 25th and Thursday, August 26th in Mangilao.

There is no cost to attend, but there is limited seating. Those interested in attending should submit their name, workshop date preference, telephone number and email address, company/agency name and job title to Guam-Outreach@fbi.gov.
