Course detail: CCFDOTH - Command and Control of Fire Department Operations at Target Hazards N0825
This six-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. The students are taught advanced applications in Incident Command System (ICS), command and control, decision-making, strategic and tactical considerations, preincident 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. The course is 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.
