Hotzone Solutions Conducts Course for Abu Dhabi Police EOD Personnel


A three week course consisting of detection, protection and decontamination was successfully conducted for Abu Dhabi Police EOD personnel during February by Hotzone Solutions Middle East.

The intense course, combining all three elements, was the latest in a series of specific-to-role training designed to assist the ADP Directorate General of Security and Ports Affairs to meet new and current threats.

The period provided course participants, through a mixture of practical and classroom work, with the ability to apply and adapt key lessons from the three areas mentioned in order to enhance their current capabilities.

Small-scale exercises, to allow application and investigation of detection and protection principles in a scenario relative to the role, were carried out.

The course consisted of applying and investigating the use of low-cost, expeditionary, team-operated, decontamination options and principles. The training also investigated options using purpose-built systems, including showers and applicators that harness the ability to decontaminate by removal and detoxification.
