Local emergency officials gathered on Tuesday for part two of their terrorism training course.

Texas A & M Instructor Joseph Couch coaches Fort Rucker personnel, Dothan Police and other emergency officials how to assess risks for terrorist threats.

This is the second of two local courses taught by the Department of Homeland Security.

Early Tuesday morning they took a threat assessment quiz to test their knowledge on identifying vulnerabilities of critical infrastructure.

They went over the answers to see how ready they are for a post 9/11 threat.

Local officials are hoping to learn all they can about facilities and systems to make our security better.

These type classes aren't just for law enforcement officials. There is a strong emphasis on security engineering concepts and security systems to make our community safer.

Wednesday, officials will go to area businesses and inspect their buildings to make sure they are protected against possible terrorist activity.
