The range includes an environmentally friendly bullet trap that captures all fired rounds. The bullet trap is rated to handle all common police firearms up to and including 50 BMG rifles.
Unexploded ordnance (UXO) ranges and search grids
TEEX offers the only commercially available Unexploded Ordnance Technician (UXO) I course recognized by the U.S. Department of Defense. Students train on TEEX's UXO ranges and search grids to identify and locate subsurface and surface UXO using military and civilian magnetometers, perform UXO excavation procedures, transport UXO and demolition materials, prepare firing systems for destruction operations, and more.
Emergency vehicle driving track
TEEX has a long history of delivering training in emergency vehicle driving and provides one of the most dynamic and fluid courses available. The TEEX emergency vehicle driving track – with its 11 training stations – helps students to safely respond to incidents by giving them hands-on practice that builds confidence in their equipment and individual performance in emergency driving situations.
