As emergency responders in New Jersey and New York prepared for Super Bowl XLVIII, Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) was tapped to train healthcare professionals in Parsippany and Sayreville, NJ to respond to an explosion or other mass-casualty incident.

Both cities had requested TEEX training in Medical Preparedness and Response to Bombing Incidents (MGT348) last September. Two additional courses in Medical Management of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives, (CBRNE) Events (PER211) were taught in Parsippany in November and December 2013.

More than 100 hospital and medical personnel and law enforcement officers attended the training in order to be better prepared to respond to an incident at the Super Bowl or any large-scale, mass casualty event. The training was funded through TEEX’s National Emergency Response and Rescue Training Center under the Homeland Security National Training Program Cooperative Agreement. MGT348 is taught in conjunction with New Mexico Tech.
