This course is a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on. The exercises are simulations of exercises using the Model City™ simulator real-life scenarios. Using the Model City, students learn to instruct the critical tasks which focus on incident stabilization with the implementation of an all-hazards approach to manage the initial response to critical incidents. Students learn to teach strategies that allow them to move ahead of incident acceleration and build a decision-making team to bring about a successful resolution of the event.
Using the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS) structures, instructors will train future students to build an effective decision-making teams to stabilize the responses and bring about a successful resolution of the simulated exercises.
Students will learn to conduct exercises in a number of modules that provide the opportunity to put into action the ICS model and implement the unified command concepts to establish an operational command post and manage a simulated critical incident.
Participants will learn to deliver training to all levels of personnel from police, fire, and EMS disciplines, as well as key decision-makers from other units of government.
Using the Unified Command approach, students will provide the necessary preparation to respond to and prepare their community's readiness for major incidents. In addition, using the ICS model, pre-event planning will be developed and practiced.
