This class is designed to prepare ambulance providers with the information necessary to function as a Strike Team/Task Force leader in response to local, state, or national disasters. A Strike Team/Task Force could respond to prescheduled events, Multi-Casuality Incidents (MCI's), disasters, or any event in which the demands for services exceed local response capabilities and if outside support is required.
Preparation, response, and demobilization procedures will be covered, as well as necessary information to ensure the safety and well-being of those assigned to the Strike Team/Task Force. The course will also cover basic information about the Incident Command System (ICS) and forms that the Strike Team/Task Force leader will be required to fill out during a deployment.
Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
