Incident Command and Review
Incident command systems play an important part in the effective management of emergencies globally. You will critically analyse these systems and assess the importance of debriefing to improve the emergency response.
Building from this you will also review a simulated incident from the preliminary assessment of the scene through to Tactical Support Group meetings coordinating a major incident. In doing so you will assess the importance of what has been covered during the course for the successful management of an emergency situation.
