DESCRIPTION

The Bomb-making Materials Awareness Program (BMAP) is an outreach initiative, developed in partnership with the FBI, to increase public and private sector awareness of homemade explosives (HME) by promoting private sector point-of-sale awareness and suspicious activity reporting to prevent misuse of explosive precursor chemicals, powders, and components commonly used in IEDs. BMAP training is designed for first responders responsible for counterterrorism outreach to build knowledge of IED threats, HMEs, and bomb-making materials. The course also provides guidance and materials to help participants conduct outreach to industries and businesses within their jurisdiction in order to strengthen prevention opportunities by building a network of vigilant and informed private sector partners who serve as the Nation’s counter-IED “eyes-and-ears”.
