Tripwire recently announced the company will host the international BRAVO-3 Training Conference & Vendor Show in Daytona Beach, Fl., March 4-6, 2019, as an all-inclusive, multi-discipline event for those in all emergency services vocations.
“By leveraging the knowledge and experience of the leading experts in the industry, Tripwire is fulfilling its mission to ensure that all practitioners are operating at optimum levels,” explains Ryan Morris, founder and CEO of Tripwire, which is headquartered in Gettysburg, Pa.
The BRAVO-3 Conference is designed for those who want to stay at the forefront of their specialty by receiving the most cutting edge and comprehensive information, technology, and Terrorist Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTP’s).
In addition to quality instruction and demonstrations, this gathering of elite professionals will also offer an ideal setting for procedure sharing and professional networking with some of the most well-respected and trusted operators, technicians, and instructors from around the world.
Classroom and practical training is scheduled to take place over the course of two full-days at multiple locations, including the main conference venue being held at The Plaza Resort & Spa, the Daytona International Speedway, and Southern Coast K9.
Hands-on involvement and on-site demonstrations will add to the one-of-a-kind experience the conference provides.
(We don’t fight alone — why train alone? With increasing frequency, multiple disciplines are working side-by-side to combat threats and respond to incidents. It is more vital now than ever that SWAT, K9, EOD, FIRE, EMS, HAZMAT and others understand the mission of one another and fully understand how they operate and why they do what they do. We offer training topics that include homemade explosives, tactical medicine, counter-UAVIED, tactical tracking, asymmetric threat recognition and much more!

BRAVO-3 was founded by, and is made up of, organizations and personnel that have decades of real-world experience within their respective career fields, including: SWAT, K9/MWD, BOMB SQUAD/EOD, FIRE, HAZMAT, TACMED, SOF, and more.
“This is an exceptional opportunity for attendees to have one-on-one interactions, and learn from some of the best in their respective fields,” added Morris.
“You will not find a more complete collaboration of professionals, whose goal it is to serve their tactical/first responder communities.”
A small sample of the topics offered includes sessions on blast injuries, criminal use of explosives, comprehensive IED electronics, active threat response, extremist interdiction, tracking and human remains detecting, K9 high-risk deployment, and much more.
More than 60 vendors will showcase their products and services over the course of the event, showcasing top dealers in specialty equipment, tools, training, services, and information.
“The importance of highly-trained emergency personnel in the coming years is indisputable,” concluded Morris.
“The benefit they provide to a community—and the country—is invaluable.”
“We want to make sure that, no matter what occurs, there are trained individuals ready to deal with it.”
