Command and General Staff Functions for Local Incident Management Teams

Overview

This course presents training to a designated team of fire, EMS, Public Works, Public Health, Law Enforcement and other agencies as necessary. While typically from a larger and generally more populated area with a single jurisdiction (city, county or region), the team may be comprised of members from several jurisdictions to fill all billets. They would be activated to manage an incident requiring a significant number of local and mutual aid resources.

The course is intended to be delivered as "team training" to an entire Local IMT. The aspects associated with training as a team are critical for effective coordination and decision-making under high stress, dynamic situations such as those during emergency incidents. It is understood, however, that there are occasions where all team members may not be able to train together, and occasions when new/additional tem members need to receive training.
