Marijuana Grow Operations -- Safe Multi-Agency Response Program

This one hour 17 minute video program and 170-slide PowerPoint presentation familiarizes public safety personnel about:  the nature of these grows, describes the very real but under-appreciated dangers associated with them, and details the tactics, techniques, and equipment that will keep first responders safe from harm or even death while responding to them. Emphasis is placed on inter-agency cooperation which is essential in these operations.

The presenter is the commander of a major state police SWAT team with numerous confined space entries into grows, and as a site safety supervisor on them. He has years of experience working with fire and EMS agencies during these operations and is intimately familiar with the dangers they pose to all first responders.

This is a free program from the Fireighters Support Foundation (FSF).
