This course is designed to provide the student with an overview of the 'Incident Command' - 'Unified Command' Structure. Students will analyze incident management from various perspectives, including those of local fire departments, in industrial settings, and through the use of case studies such as the Oklahoma City bombing. Students will work interactively to prepare for future roles and responsibilities as those charged with a management role in incident command, control or mitigation. Moreover, the student will learn from the experiences of others, sharpening their understanding and skills relative to the dimensions of emergency incident management.
