Module 5: Chemical Agents - Nevada Department of Corrections
Standardized Awareness Authorized Training, Train-the-Trainer Chemical Agents Objectives Discuss chemical agents, such as Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TIC), Riot Control Agents (RCA), and Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA), as well as the physiological signs/symptoms associated with them. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using chemical agents for terrorist activity.
Identify potential sources in the community where chemicals are manufactured, transported, stored, used, or disposed. 2 Objectives (continued) Discuss the TRACEM-P acronym. Identify the indicators of a possible criminal/terrorist act involving chemical agents. Discuss the control zones used during a chemical agent
incident. Discuss instructional strategies for facilitating the Chemical Agents module. 3 Chemical Agents Types Dissemination Availability Volatility
