Command and Control of Incident Operations is an intensive six-day educational opportunity designed specifically for the fire service officer. The course is part of the Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP), taught on campus at the NFA and through the NFA-Sponsored Off-Campus Program in the field.
During training, students study the Incident Command System (ICS) and proper fire command techniques for the control and extinguishment of fires ranging from small residential structures to multi-occupancy and commercial complexes. Topics include problem-solving and fire command; interagency and mutual aid; incident size-up, strategy and tactics; incident management and strategic Command; building construction and fire behavior; and pre-incident preparation. Special emphasis is placed in firefighter safety and the development of decision-making skills through the use of classroom simulations.
