Structure Collapse Simulator for Missouri HRF Training

The National Guard is seeking a contractor to support Missouri National Guard Homeland Response Force (HRF) search and extraction training at Camp Gruber, OK in March 2015.

The contractor shall provide a Structure Collapse Venue Site (SCVS) setup and reset for the training, dubbed ‘Missouri Ready 2015’. Personnel assigned to this task shall possess the skills and expertise necessary to perform assigned tasks associated with this order. Additionally, the contractor will provide search and extraction lanes training to simulate a realistic structure collapse.

The National Guard uses Structure Collapse Simulators (SCS) to simulate the collapsed state of buildings due to a natural disaster or a domestic terrorism event. The use of these simulator venues supports regional training and exercises to enhancing domestic contingency preparedness exercises and evaluations of CBRNE Enhanced Response Force Package (CERFP), Homeland Response Force (HRF) and other CBRNE response capabilities.

A SCVS is a location where one or more SCS are used to simulate the collapsed state of buildings.

These simulators were built to be realistic, challenging, and maintainable, to provide the needed skill lanes. The training venues provide strategic and tactical skills challenges of such complexity that repetitiveness does not breed familiarity with the training prop and training lanes.

The SCVS must be of sufficient size and complexity to keep the Search and Extraction (S&E) teams training in a realistic condition and environment so individuals gain valuable experience and expertise working on a simulated “real world” structure collapse.

Further details are available via Solicitation Number: W912NS-R-0001.
