This month, the State Preparedness Training Center (SPTC) will host the annual “Excelsior Challenge”, which is a hands-on training event designed to increase coordination among Bomb Squads, Explosive Detection Canine Teams, and Tactical Teams. More than 100 law enforcement personnel from across the State will participate in this event. This year’s Excelsior Challenge will feature scenarios inspired by the current threat environment, including recent terrorist attacks in London, Orlando, and Dallas.

The opportunity is:

  • Role Players: The SPTC is committed to ensuring the most realistic training experience possible for the State’s first responders; role players are an important part of this effort. DHSES is requesting up to 25 role players per day from CEHC; these students will supplement another 100 role players from NCSP and DHSES. This is an excellent opportunity for younger undergraduate students to be exposed to the SPTC, to view scenario-based training, and to receive briefings on the SPTC’s training efforts.
