MIEMSS Improvised Explosive Devices Demo

Last Updated on Mar 25, 2014 at 2:34pm | Board of Commissioners
The Miltenberger Emergency Services Seminar will be held April 4 and 5, 2014, at the Wisp Resort in McHenry, Maryland.  In the afternoon of Friday, April 4, the Federal Bureau of Investigation Bomb Technician Squad in conjunction with the Maryland State Fire Marshall’s Office will be conducting an outside exercise involving improvised explosive devices on the upper area of the ski slopes. This is a training demonstration only and will be closely monitored by both organizations to ensure safety measures are in place.  From approximately 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. citizens and visitors at the Wisp Resort and surrounding area will hear explosive sounds that are associated with this training.  You should advise any public safety officers and staff working at that timeframe, these demonstrations will be loud, sporadic, and could possibly alarm neighboring residents or visitors.   If you have any questions or concerns, please call Dwayne Kitis, MIEMSS Region I Administrator at 301-895-5934.
