EDISON - The FBI and Department of Homeland Security held an explosives training session for New Jersey law enforcement departments.

The federal agents trained local bomb technicians, first responders and people in the chemical industry on the potential dangers of using common chemicals to make explosives.

Agents say that even a small amount of the chemicals combined together can be dangerous.

"I think it's pretty impactful when our special agent bomb techs are able to take on certain household chemicals, combine them together…and see how devastating it could be,” says special agent Kevin Conklin.

The training session is part of the FBI’s initiative to protect the United States from terrorist attacks.
