New Training Announcement: E947-York County Emergency Operations Center-Incident Management Team Interface Course
January 14, 2013
EOC-IMT Interface is a new resident course released in FY09 to provide an exercise environment for EOC members and IMT responders to practice communications and coordination between the EOC and field operations command during simulated incidents, both planned and unplanned. This course describes the roles, responsibilities and relationships of local EOCs and IMTs. It trains participants on effective management of domestic incidents and exercises the interfaces between EOC personnel and All Hazards IMTs (AHIMT) (Type 3, 4 and 5). This IEMC clarifies the difference between resource management at the EOC and on-scene command. It presents four ways an EOC can be organized and explains the difference between the IMT's on-scene command responsibilities and an EOC’s coordination responsibilities. This course is delivered via classroom lectures, discussions and functional exercises. Primary course goals are:
-Provide training on the interactions necessary for effective management of domestic incidents.
-Exercise the interfaces between EOC personnel and an AHIMT.
