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.
To bring the experience to life, on-camera press interviews are conducted, press releases are prepared and the command staff will provide briefings to government officials. Participants will learn to deliver to senior-level command personnel from police, fire, and EMS disciplines, as well as key decision-makers from other units of government and the private sector.
Using the Unified Command approach, students will provide the necessary preparation to respond to and evaluate their community's readiness for major incidents. In addition, using the ICS model, pre-event planning will be developed and practiced.
