The goal of the Enhanced Incident Management/Unified Command (E IMUC) Course (course number MGT314) is to enhance the participants' incident management and decision-making skills necessary to effectively and safely respond to a CBRNE terrorism incident. The E IMUC Course is 28 hours in length, 20 of which train participants in incident management skills, situational awareness development, and incident decision-making using a computer-driven simulation in a CBRNE scenario.
Participants learn from the cause and effects of their decisions while working in an Incident Command Post (ICP) using a notional jurisdiction. The course provides a short overview of WMD emergency response considerations and methodologies of the Incident Command System (ICS) following the National Incident Management System (NIMS) guidelines while working in a Unified Command structure. The command team in the ICP is then presented several rigorous computer-driven emergency response scenarios.
The course is delivered in the world-class Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), National Emergency Response and Rescue Training Center (NERRTC) Emergency Operations Training Center (EOTC) in College Station, Texas.
The CBRNE instructional team consists of trainers experienced in NIMS methodologies, emergency management, and incident response. The course uses a multidiscipline, jurisdictional, team-building approach to accomplish the course objectives. Each staff position is integrated into a Unified Command structure responding to an incident. During the simulation, participants will work in various staff positions within the ICP and Unified Command.
The course adapts existing incident management systems and procedures to the unique requirements of responding to CBRNE terrorist incidents. The course is designed to give supervisory responders a "virtual experience" in the management of CBRNE incidents. The overall incident management structure used in the course is based on the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the National Response Plan (NRP), and is certified by the DHS, Office of Grants and Training.
