“Guidance for new and experienced IC’s”

This class is designed to teach and challenge the new company officer. During this program we will discuss what it takes to be a good Incident Commander. This class will show you what traits help to run a successful incident and how to get the most out of your people. We will review the basics of officer development. On-scene reports, tactical considerations and assigning tasks to personnel are just a few. This class is lecture style, with interactive action based scenarios that are done in the class room. Scenarios are run using portable radios and using a state of the artsimulation program,  while the other portion will be run using a command board for tracking purposes.
