Command and Control of Fire Department Operations at Target Hazards — N0825


August 3-8, 2015 — Kirkwood, Missouri — Register Now


This 6-day course is designed to introduce command officers to the complexities involved in commanding incidents in high-risk areas. Students are confronted with a number of fire and rescue incidents that include high life hazard, multiple exposure, and unusual occupancy risk considerations. Students are introduced to advanced applications in the Incident Command System (ICS), command and control, decision making, strategic and tactical considerations, pre-incident preparation, documentation, and post-incident analysis. Several simulations and case studies are used to depict and review incidents in various types of target hazards. Some examples of these are penal institutions, bulk oil-storage facilities, nursing homes, colleges, chemical/agricultural manufacturing plants, and grain elevators. This course is very comprehensive and uses lecture, case study, simulation, and student participation as instructional methods. This class is not a tactics class, but explains the development of Incident Management Teams.


Target Audience

Also, officers who may have this responsibility eventually and are upwardly mobile in their organizations may be considered.
