Looking for a free tool that you can use to assess the capabilities of your agencyís tactical team? The DHS Office for Bombing Prevention (OBP) will provide an overview of their online capability assessment tool that is a component of the National Counter-Improvised Explosive Device Capabilities Analysis Database (NCCAD) that provides capabilities analysis of bomb squads, explosives detection canine teams, dive teams, and Special Weapons and Tactics Teams throughout the United States. The NCCAD methodology measures readiness, equipment, training, and assets required for effective planning, prevention, and response to improvised explosive device (IED) and active assailant threats. It also identifies gaps in a unitís readiness and makes recommendations for filling those gaps. This analysis of your unitís capabilities is provided back to you in report format that can be used to brief decision-makers in your agency about potential shortfalls, resource allocation and capability enhancements.
