This week, CBC News has an exclusive look at some of the siege operator’s tools and tactics for their own use.

What is a siege operator?

A siege operator is an employee or contractor working for the Government of Canada.

The job typically requires them to conduct operations to prevent the entry of foreign or domestic law enforcement or to help in the apprehension of criminals.

What does a siege call do?

A call can be an alert that the threat has escalated or an alert for a person to leave the area or call for assistance.

What kind of equipment does a Siege Operator use?

Siege operators are typically deployed to help police, but sometimes also use hand-held weapons and live ammunition to protect themselves.

What are the differences between the Canadian Forces and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police?

The Canadian Forces has more than 600,000 active and reserve members.

The Royal Canadian Navy has about 150 ships and about 100 aircraft.

The RCMP has about 50,000 members.

What do they do when they’re not working?

They’re normally out at sea or on a mission.

Some have taken on military roles in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

How does the Government make sure a siege is successful?

In some cases, a siege operation can take up to a week to complete.

The government requires that a siege be approved by the Office of the Superintendent of Operations before it can take place.

It will be in the hands of the operator, and they’ll have to follow a set of guidelines.

For example, they must provide a safe environment and not cause a disturbance.

Why does a Canadian police officer need a siege kit?

To use a siege, the operator needs a weapon that can be loaded with a high-powered scope, high-calibre rounds, live ammunition, a mask, an earpiece, a body bag and a helmet.

It’s also important that the operator be trained in the operation and understand the threat.

A hostage situation can last for days.

Some operators have a range of weapons and can be deployed in an area for a number of hours.

What happens if someone is injured in a siege?

In cases where an operator is seriously injured or is otherwise in danger, they’ll be evacuated to a hospital.

They’ll be taken back to their vehicle, and the operator will return to their job.

When will a siege start?

A number of operations are scheduled to take place during the summer.

They’re usually scheduled between July and September.

They usually run until around midnight.

How long does a lockdown last?

A lockdown lasts for a limited period of time, usually a few hours, and may end after the end of the lockdown.

What is a lockdown time?

A lockout is an operational rule, which means it’s a specific set of instructions.

It can be set by an operator, by a commander or by a commanding officer.

The lockdown will be based on an assessment of the situation and the threat to the public.

Is there an end-of-life care for a hostage?

There’s no formal end- of-life for hostages.

In a hostage situation, a hostage will need medical attention for at least three days.

After that, they may be released to a family member.

What if there’s a fire?

What if someone gets trapped in the building?

In a fire, a firefighter will go inside the building, and that person can go out.

A second fire will go out within minutes.

When is a building closed?

All of the operations in Canada are scheduled during the spring.

The closure dates can be modified to meet changing threats.

In an emergency, when there is a need for closure, a specific order is issued.
