This week The Tactical Fire Problem involves open street fires during civil unrest.
1.) Have you had any combined training with law enforcement to understand the complexities of civil unrest? In today’s day and age the spark or trigger for an event can occur without warning.
2.) Are you prepared to decon law enforcement officers from tear gas and foreign compounds or bodily fluids and waste thrown at them?
3.) There needs to be an extremely tight ICS and command system established. Do you have members that freelance during normal operations? What are they going to do in this case? What is there are civilians or LE down?
4.) What is your plan if you are asked to use water to disperse people, or to use your apparatus for cover?
5.) Where can you get valid training on this topic to brief your personnel?
