The Enhanced IM/UC course focuses on incident management skills, staff responsibilities and the related situational awareness and decision-making skills using a computer-driven training simulation to offer a challenging decision-making environment in a WMD scenario. The course focuses on the Incident Command Post (ICP) and the key decision-making requirements within that response node. Participants learn from the cause and effects of incident decisions while working in an ICP using a simulated, notional jurisdiction. The course begins with a short overview of WMD emergency response considerations and methodologies of the Incident Command System (ICS) in a unified command structure followed by several rigorous computer-driven emergency responses in chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) scenarios. The course is delivered (resident) in the world-class NERRTC EOTC in College Station, Texas. The WMD instructional team consists of trainers experienced in emergency management and incident response. The course uses a multidiscipline, jurisdictional approach to accomplish the course objectives. Each staff position is integrated into a unified command structure responding to an incident. The course adapts existing incident management systems and procedures to the unique requirements of responding to WMD/terrorism incidents. The overall incident management structure used in the course is based on the National Incident Management System(NIMS) and the National Response Framework (NRF), and is certified by the DHS/FEMA Training and Exercise Integration Division.
