Aggressive Command Leads to Successful Outcomes on the Fireground
The incident commander is instrumental in the successful outcome of all emergency responses. A strong incident command presence will have a greater impact on the development of the emergency response than a weak command without direction. With multiple crews responding to incidents, we must get the response and assignments correct and in place promptly to achieve success. The duties of the incident commander include monitoring progression, determining the importance of incidents, and assigning crews. This class will discuss situational awareness, tactical decision making, and the importance of a well-trained and involved incident commander.
