Copies were initially distributed to the liaison of different PROs after the first dril competition in Camp Crame, Quezon City. Participants of the bomb awareness seminars conducted were also given copies.
Advisory posters and leaflets will be distributed to the public for them to be aware of the recent trend of bombing events and to be vigilant for possible retaliatory attacks on vital installations and soft targets like churches and public transport facilities after the death of Osama Bin Laden, founder and leader of Al Qaeda terrorist group who was killed by U.S. Navy Seals.
Moreover, the first Bomb Drill Competition was successfully held in Camp Crame, Quezon City last March 24, 2011 which was participated by various police units in the National Capital Region and Philippine Army, EOD. A similar activity was also held in General Santos City on April 27, 2011. The cities of Butuan and Zamboanga will play host on the next activities.
The bomb squad drill competitions is aimed at upgrading the reliability and efficiency of the PNP and the AFP EOD/Bomb Squads in Manila and Mindanao, particularly in responding to any bomb related threats. The competition will stimulate the awareness of local chief executives and PNP commanders on the level of preparedness and equipage of their respective units and personnel. Further, the event will serve as a morale booster to the EOD community in general and enhanced interoperability among law enforcement agencies.
The PNP had already intensified its security measures around Metro Manila and the entire country to curb movements of local terrorist groups who will try to bring their evil acts after their leader was killed.
In addition to these activities, the center also provides lecturer to Post Blast Investigation course conducted to different police units aimed to guide first responders, bomb technicians, criminal and forensic investigators, as well supervisors on the investigation management of a bombing case.
