"The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Grants and Training (G&T), has established the Domestic Preparedness Equipment Technical Assistance Program (DPETAP), a comprehensive, National, technical assistance program for emergency responders. DPETAP was developed in partnership with the United States Army's Pine Bluff Arsenal, the center of expertise for chemical and biological defensive equipment production and support for the U.S. Department of Defense. DPETAP provides on-site technical assistance and training to assist emergency responders to better choose, operate, and maintain their chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) detection and response equipment. Training is provided by DPETAP Mobile Technical Assistance Teams at no cost to the jurisdiction. These teams provide detailed technical information and hands-on equipment operation and maintenance training. DPETAP offers--at no cost to the user--46 courses and practical exercises ranging from one hour to 16 hours in length."
