Dangers of Secondary Devices
It is very common for Bombers to plant secondary devices. These are used to kill and injure Responders arriving at the initial blast. Everyone must be aware that thesee may be deployed at the scene and act accordingly.
Below is an excellent training video that everyone should watch.
Pressure Cooker Explosive Devices
The pressure cooker devices used in the recent NY/NJ jihadist attacks are easy to make and easy to detonate. They can be triggered by fuses, cell phones, radio transmissions, kitchen timers and other means.These were rather crude and poorly made. Most explosives experts feel the main charge was NOT Tannerite. These are very similar to those used in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Luckily, average citizens spotted one of them and called 911. The Bomb Squad arrived and was able to collect it intact for analysis. Kudos to those Sheepdogs.
