Hazard Zone Management is a critical part of emergency services
operations during man-made incidents and disasters. Command, control, and personnel safety are the most important parts of disaster operations. This two-day program will provide information on the scope of these emergencies, command, planning, dealing with outside agencies at different levels, and political involvement. Case studies will be presented to examine the different techniques used in handling these incidents/disasters. Seven simulations dealing with a mass shooting, bombing, aircraft crash, civil disorder, light rail derailment, multiple vehicle accident (30+ vehicles), and weapons of mass destruction incident..
Topics include: explosion, hazardous materials, mass shooting, bombing, aircraft incidents, civil disorder, major power outage, light rail incident, multiple vehicle accident, weapons of mass destruction.
This is a simulation intensive workshop and students 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.
