We had a great two weeks with Waterbury and Naugatuck CT fire department officers delivering Incident Command System Training. Each shift worked on creating an IAP for a six-hour operational period in response to a tornado impacting Waterbury.
About 70 officers participated in four groups. Each group attended a two-day session.
The course was funded through a grant provided to the departments. MissionCIT, having been selected to deliver the training, created custom content that included:
- Preparing the IAP (Forms, Safety, Weather, Maps)
- Implementing all the relevant ICS forms
- Reviewing the ICS Cycle
- Simulating a real-world exercise
- Presenting to the CT Emergency Management Director
