The goal of this professional development course, E/L 0984 Task Force/Strike (Resource) Team Leader, is to provide training designed to support all-hazards competencies and behaviors for a Task Force/Strike (Resource) Team Leader within a Type III Incident Management Team (IMT).
Before the 9/11 attacks, ICS training was exercised nearly exclusively on fire-based incidents. Recognizing the applicability and sincere need for NIMS principles across incident response disciplines, an “all-hazards” approach to training will be embraced in this course.
With an “all-hazards” approach, this course will focus on how a Task Force/Strike (Resource) Team (TF/ST) Leader needs to fundamentally possess the same core knowledge, skills, and abilities whether they are responding to a fire, an oil spill, a mass-casualty incident, or another incident. In other words, regardless of the hazard, discipline, or incident, the essential job of a TF/ST Leader is the same.
This course uses lecture, discussion, student participation, and activities to focus on understanding the behaviors, duties, responsibilities, and capabilities of an effective TF/ST Leader on a Type III AHIMT.
The intended audience(s) are local- or state-level emergency responders who may be designated as Task Force/Strike (Resource) Team Leaders on their local or state Incident Management Team (IMT). The materials were developed with the assumption that audience members may have little or no actual experience as a member of an AHIMT.
The audience may include students from a variety of agencies and functional disciplines, including fire service, law enforcement, emergency management, public works departments, as well as public health organizations, medical emergency teams, and hospitals.
National Incident Management System (NIMS) Incident Command System (ICS) position-specific training should be completed by personnel who are regularly assigned to function, support, or unit leader positions on USFA or other Type III or IV AHIMT or by those persons who desire to seek credentials/certification in those positions.
IFSI prerequisites are based on Illinois and NFPA standards. Equivalencies from other agencies will be reviewed upon request.
