The United States Marine Corps Chemical Biological Incident Response Force (CBIRF) is seeking information for potential sources for Training and Exercise Support involving the Fire Department of New York.
The CBIRF requires continuous support of multiple training and exercise site sessions and locations at Randalls Island, FDNY Training Academy and associated exercise venue.
This training is designed to increase the unit’s familiarity with large city response and to maintain a professional relationship between CBIRF and FDNY. The ultimate goal is to provide the safest and most realistic first responder training to CBIRF personnel responding to a large scale incident.
Bilateral training, specifically with FDNY, is required in the event of joint response to a CBRNE incident in the New York City area. Bilateral training efforts were established in 1998 due to the high threat target area of New York City and are continuously required in order to maintain continuity of CBIRF/FDNY CBRNE response tactics. The training will be broken into several training blocks in order to meet the IRF’s training/work schedule.
Further details are available via Solicitation Number: M2036415RFI0001. The response deadline is March 9, 2015.
