The Key West Fire Department in
conjunction with the Department of Justice recently provided an Awareness
Course in Incident Response to Terrorist Bombings to City Associates.
These individuals and other members of their various departments may be
called upon to respond to, and or assist, with operations by Police and
Fire personnel in the event of an incident. The course also provides
information on recognition of suspicious items, security suggestions and
prevention of acts of terrorism. Each will receive a Certificate from the
Department of Justice for their successful completion of the course. All
members of the Fire Department receive the training and the Police
Department is also scheduled to attend.
