Good morning again CFTDA! A message from Walt Holloway from the College of the Desert regarding MGT 314 “Enhanced All-Hazards Incident Management/Unified Command”

“The Enhanced Incident Management/Unified Command for All Hazards course focuses on incident management skills, staff responsibilities, and the related situational awareness skills using a computer-driven training simulation designed to create a challenging decision-making environment in an expanding complex incident.

The course focuses on the processes used in an Incident Command Post (ICP) and the key decision-making requirements within that response node. Command and coordination, resource management, and communications & information management are emphasized. Participants learn from the cause and effects of incident decisions while performing in an ICP and responding to a variety of simulated, notional exercises.

The course is delivered (resident) at the National Emergency Response and Recovery Training Center/Emergency Operations Training Center (NERRTC/EOTC) in College Station, Texas. The instructional team consists of coaches and mentors experienced in emergency management and incident response. The course uses a multi-disciplinary approach to accomplish the course objectives. Each participant is integrated into a unified command structure responding to a simulated incident. The course emphasizes the application of contemporary incident management systems, best practices and procedures to the unique requirements of responding to all-hazards incidents.

The incident management structure used in the course is based on National Incident Management System (NIMS) doctrine and the Incident Command System (ICS), and is certified by the Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency (DHS/FEMA) National Training and Exercise Division (NTED).”

Good morning CFTDA!

Just a friendly reminder that the deadline for membership dues is coming up on April 1st! For those that have paid thank you very much! For those that have not yet paid, please contact Scott Jaeggi to ensure you are up-to-date. We know that if your school is paying for you it may take time.

Additionally, each school should have received your survey link for the Fire Technology side, we are working on the EMS-specific survey and that should be hitting your inboxes in early April. All surveys must be in before July 1st. This information is invaluable to our programs. If your school has not seen an email from either myself or Jeff Baumunk please let us know. Again, thank you very much to those who have already completed them.

Have a great weekend!
