NFSTC will host the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Methamphetamine Laboratory Awareness and Operations Training Program for First Responders on March 25 and 26, 2014. Tuition for this 2-day program is free and registration is on a first come, first served basis for first responders in various agencies in the Tampa Bay area.
The clandestine production of methamphetamine is growing at an alarming rate across the country. Clandestine methamphetamine laboratories (meth labs) range from crude makeshift operations to highly sophisticated facilities. They can be set up almost anywhere and are often found in private residences, apartments, trailers, automobiles, campgrounds, and hotel and motel rooms. EPA recognizes that meth labs pose a significant threat to human health and the environment and strives to ensure that first responders are well prepared to respond to these labs.
Date: March 25 – 26, 2014
Time: 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM (both days)
