Critical Incident Management (Initial Response)
June 28 @ 8:00 am - June 30 @ 4:00 pm
The Critical Incident Management – Initial Response program offered by Wisconsin Emergency Management provides first and second line supervisors, command and executive personnel with a program that moves beyond merely researching and writing of emergency plans to the training of key personnel in a high stress, realistic, simulated environment.
This program will provide supervisors with instruction in the nature and characteristics of critical incidents and will provide them with the opportunity to manage various types of incidents in a “simulated” high stress environment. Participants will manage incidents on a detailed and realistic 96 sq. ft. “Model City Simulator©”. The simulator is set-up at your site and can accommodate up to twenty-one individuals for each 3 day program.
When the participant completes this course he/she will be able to:
List the seven critical tasks to be accomplished during the “Crisis Phase” of the incident.
Describe each task as to how they are to be accomplished.
Utilize those tasks to manage various types of incidents in a simulated environment.
Describe the nature of critical incidents and how command shifts take place as the incident progresses.
Describe the incident characteristics and agency response strategies that differentiate the Crisis and Scene Management Phases.
Describe how the “Incident Command System” (ICS) will assist in scene management at the field command post.
Set up a “Decision Making Team” utilizing appropriate components of ICS in response to a variety of incidents.
