Emergency Preparedness and Planning Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) and Homeland Security and Evaluation Program (HSEEP)

US EPA Region 3

TechLaw personnel, under the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP), plan and execute a variety of full-scale exercises involving identification and exposure to hazardous materials, terrorist shootings, hostage situations, force-on-force activity with law enforcement, and injury of victims, requiring on-scene triage and EMS transport to hospital facilities.  In addition to planning and facilitating these exercises, TechLaw personnel develop exercise scenarios and provide realistic venue set-ups, including dirty bomb and nerve agent production, methamphetamine and ricin laboratories, and explosive situations with pipe bombs and trip wires. We have also planned and implemented exercises under the National Preparedness for Response Exercise Program (PREP) involving a scenario that dealt with severe damage to the piping/valve system of a large gasoline storage tank.
