Incident Command: Capabilities, Planning and Response Actions for All Hazards (IC)
The Incident Command: Capabilities, Planning and Response Actions for All Hazards course is a 24-hour course that provides the responder with in-depth training on the entire spectrum of command of a Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) terrorist event. The course provides instruction on WMD; the Incident Command System (ICS) coupled with federal response; an examination of the complexities of operational considerations and actions of command at a WMD event; pre and post planning considerations utilizing techniques which allow the commander to determine the correct composition of the planning team; evaluating the threat to the jurisdiction; identifying and prioritizing probable targets; measuring required capabilities; and developing a local Incident Response Plan (IRP) to a WMD terrorist incident. The course culminates with the responder participating in an eight-hour real-time tabletop exercise using the materials developed in the previous sessions to plan for and command the emergency response resources at the incident site.
- To identify domestic and international terrorist groups, ideologies, and methods of executing terrorist acts
- To demonstrate competent knowledge of the four components of WMD, their complexities, and their effects
- To demonstrate the ability to perform as the incident Commander at a WMD incident or as a member of the incident management staff
