This 2-day Chief Officer Workshop will provide strategic level command decision making and incident management in the role of the Chief Officer. Students will receive instruction and be involved in managing 1st Alarm and greater fires, Hazardous Material Incidents, and complex multi-agency emergencies, including the transition from offensive to defensive strategies. Simulated scenarios will emphasize Incident Organization, transition to the Command Van, and functioning in the responsibilities of Incident Commander, Support Officer, Senior Advisor and Administrative functions.
This is a simulation intensive workshop and participants will be required to make critical decisions in real time.
Virtual Incident Command Center training is in compliance with the National Incident Management System (NIMS). All training is referenced to the National Response Framework (NRF), which serves as the guiding principles that enable all response partners to prepare for and provide a unified national response to disasters and emergencies. The NRF establishes a comprehensive, national, all-hazards approach to domestic incident response. When you successfully complete training at the VICC, you're the complete package for incident command.
