Course Description

This 2-day course is designed for the responder(s) who may be responsible for initial and expanded command of incidents involving terrorism. The course is intended to build upon the students' existing skills as an Incident Commander (IC), a practitioner of ICS, with knowledge of NIMS, the National Response Framework, and terrorism. The class will assist the officer in preparing an effective response to the consequences of terrorism. IC's must be prepared to operate as part of a multiagency, multidiscipline, and multijurisdictional response. The course utilizes lecture supported by case studies and practice scenarios to address the command and control challenges that likely will confront the IC. This will enable the students to apply their knowledge of preincident planning, managing emerency incidents, and operating as part of a Unified Command structure to ensure the safety of responders while bringing the incident to a successful conclusion.
