BLUE CARD IC CERTIFICATION
SIMULATION EVALUATION SESSION


Chief (Ret.) Alan Brunacini, Deputy Chief (Ret.) Nick Brunacini, and Captain (Ret.) John Brunacini, Phoenix (AZ) Fire Department



MONDAY & TUESDAY, APRIL 24-25
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Blue Card program is a local, hazard zone, command training, and certification program. It is designed for fire department members who respond to and manage National Incident Management System Type 4 and 5 immediately dangerous to life or health incident operations. Blue Card embeds safety, incident command, management, strategy, and tactics into a single command system. It allows a local fire department (or any other emergency response agency) to customize and tailor it to fit its local resource levels, response times, and standard operating procedures (SOPs). The Blue Card program provides end users with a standardized operational system that allows them to safely and effectively deliver and manage hazard zone incident operations. The cognitive portion of the program is delivered online. This standardizes instruction and provides a very flexible delivery system for the student and the organization (i.e., the student’s department).

ALL STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE THE 50-HOUR BLUE CARD ONLINE TRAINING PROGRAM PRIOR TO ENTERING INTO THE SIMULATION LAB (available at:www.BlueCardCommand.com).

The evaluation portion of the course merges the Hazard Zone Management- Incident Command Standard with the local resources, SOPs, tactical hazards, and standard operational action required for conducting safe and effective locally based operations. The simulation-based training provides the students with valuable hands-on training and experience for high-risk, low-frequency events. Each student must successfully serve as the incident commander in a fast attack position (mobile IC) and a strategic command position (inside a battalion chief’s rig, stationary IC) for each of the five building types (a total of 10 evaluations) to become certified.
