Fireground Incident Command- Topeka, KS

August 27 - August 28

The 2020 SCAFFA School will be held August 27-30, 2020 in Topeka, Kansas.

Once again, Task Force 1, Inc. is once again honored to be a part of this. We will present Fireground Incident Command on August 27, 2020 form 1- 5 PM and will continue on Friday, August 28, 2020 at 8:00AM concluding at 12:00 PM.

About the program:
The focus of this program is on incident management skills and decision. Without a framework to follow, chaos will ensue. Students will be exposed to the inner workings of a command post. The program includes a didactic presentation, many small group exercises, case study reviews and classroom simulation exercises.

Program Format:
This program is presented in a classroom setting for the sharing of didactic information. It then transitions to interactive group exercises, role plays, class exercises and scenario-based simulation exercises.

Course Goal:
The overall goal of this program is to provide the participant with an understanding for the need of a strong, well coordinate command structure for any emergency response.

Upon complete of this course, the students will demonstrate an understanding and show competence in the following areas:

• Effective establishment of command
• The differentiation between strategy and tactics.
• Effective span of control, delegation of responsibilities and sound incident management principles.
• Correct use of incident management principles including groups, divisions and supervisors.
• The importance of ongoing documentation of an incident related to objectives, benchmarks, tactical use of resources and personnel.
• The effective applications for the use of incident command teams for all incidents based around available local resources.
