Tactical Electronics sponsors Urban Shield

Learn More about URBAN SHIELD 2014!

Tactical Electronics is proud to sponsor Urban Shield in Alameda County, California, September 4-8th. Stop by booth #3005 during the vendor show (September 4th & 5th) to see the Tactical Electronics technology that will be available for use in the scenarios.

EXERCISE OVERVIEW:

Since its inception in 2007, Urban Shield has continued to grow as a comprehensive full-scale regional preparedness exercise. Beginning September 4, 2014, an even larger Urban Shield exercise will once again test the overall Bay Area UASI Region‘s response capabilities related to multi-discipline planning, policies, procedures, organization, equipment and training. Urban Shield will test regional integrated systems for prevention, protection, response and recovery in our high-threat, high-density urban area. The 48-hour exercise will evaluate our existing level of preparedness and capabilities, identifying not only what we do well, but areas that may be in need of improvement. An After-Action Report will be generated to assist in prioritizing upcoming expenditures in order for the region to become more prepared for any type of critical event.

The overarching goal of Urban Shield is to provide a multi-layered training exercise to enhance the skills and abilities of regional first responders, as well as those responsible for coordinating and managing large scale events. This exercise is designed to identify and stretch regional resources to their limits, while expanding regional collaboration and building positive relationships. In addition, this exercise provides increased local business and critical infrastructure collaboration. Urban Shield will challenge the skills, knowledge and abilities of all who participate. It will improve regional disaster response capabilities and provide a platform for first responders to work efficiently and effectively together.

Tactical Electronics will provide Training Aids and Wireless Camera systems for use in 5 different scenarios during the 48-hour exercise. Monday evening during the awards banquet Tactical Electronics will provide prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place EOD teams. First place will receive a 2nd Line EOD Tool Kit, Second Place- Four 1st Line Tool Kits, and Third Place- Four RIP Kits. A raffle for a free Training Course with TE will also be held during the vendor show.
