Phase II (16-hour) is designed to teach strategic and tactical requirements to properly handle, either defensively or offensively, an industrial emergency incident with the resources that your agency has available. The classroom portion of this class is targeted to give a specific tactical approach at handling industrial emergency incidents. The practical hands-on exercises introduce and reinforce the tactical methods required to mitigate an industrial emergency incident. This course provides a unique opportunity for municipal emergency response personnel to apply specific strategies and tactics for the assessment, management and control of industrial emergency incidents through simulated and live fire activities.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
