U.S. National Fire Academy (NFA)

This course presents training to a designated team of fire, EMS, Department of Public Works, Public Health and/or law enforcement personnel from a larger and generally more populated area, typically with a single jurisdiction (city, county or region). They would be activated to manage an incident requiring a significant number of local and mutual aid resources. The course is intended to be delivered as "team training" to an entire Local IMT. The aspects associated with training as a team are critical for effective coordination and decision-making under high stress, dynamic situations such as those during emergency incidents. It is understood, however, that there are occasions where all team members may not be able to train together, and occasions when new/additional team members need to receive training.
