The Enhanced Incident Management/Unified Command for All Hazards course focuses on incident management skills, staff responsibilities, and the related situational awareness and decision-making skills using a computer-driven training simulation to create a challenging decision-making environment in an expanding complex incident.
The course focuses on the processes used while working in an Incident Command Post (ICP) and the key decision-making requirements within that response node. You will learn from the cause and effects of incident decisions while working in an ICP and responding to simulated, national exercises.
The course is delivered (resident) at the National Emergency Response and Rescue Training Center/Emergency Operations Training Center (NERRTC/EOTC) in College Station, Texas. The instructional team consists of coaches and mentors experienced in emergency management and incident response. The course uses a multi-disciplinary approach to accomplish the course objectives. Each staff position is integrated into a unified command structure responding to an incident. The course adapts existing incident management systems and procedures to the unique requirements of responding to all-hazards incidents.
The overall incident management structure used in the course is based on the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the National Response Framework (NRF), and is certified by the Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency (DHS/FEMA) Training and Exercise Integration Division.
PrerequisitesParticipants must be supervisors or managers in one of the NTED emergency responder disciplines/services in the target audience and possess a working knowledge of the Incident Command System (ICS).
