This five-day course provides students with a solid foundation of the activities; processes; leadership elements; and the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) necessary to function within the framework of a Type 3 All-Hazards Incident Management Team (AHIMT) deployed to an incident or planned event. The course is considered fast-paced, highly interactive, and challenging as the students, formed into the Command and General Staff positions on a Type 3 AHIMT, navigate through multiple activities and rapidly expanding incident scenarios. The course includes a comprehensive review of the roles and responsibilities of each of the Incident Command System (ICS) Command and General Staff positions, their roles as leaders of their sections or functional areas, leadership and teambuilding, and decision-making under stress.
This course will assist individual responders to perform as viable team members by:
Learning the basic foundational knowledge, skills and, abilities (KSAs)
necessary to perform in an ICS position on a Type 3 AHIMT. Emphasizing the nature and purpose of a Type 3 AHIMT so that others in the community and emergency services are more willing and able to assist or participate on their local Type 3 AHIMT.
Demonstrating the critical role that leadership and teamwork skills play in the success of a Type 3 AHIMT.
Providing a basic framework for building and maintaining critical
interpersonal communications and for working together as a team member of a Type 3 AHIMT.
Operationalizing the components of the National Incident Management
System (NIMS) and National Response Framework (NRF) for use in the field.
Offering practical experience of on-scene operations through extensive
exercises and simulations that provide students with multiple opportunities to perform as members of a Type 3 AHIMT during simulated incidents.
IFSI prerequisites are based on Illinois and NFPA standards. Equivalencies from other agencies will be reviewed upon request.
