Brief Description
All-Hazards Incident Management Team (AHIMT) Introduction Course (O-305)
Full Description
Course Description:
This five-day course provides students with a solid foundation of the activities, processes, leadership elements, and the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) necessary to function within the framework of a Type 3 AHIMT deployed to an incident or planned event. The course is considered fast-paced, highly interactive, and challenging as the students, formed into the Command and General Staff positions on an All-Hazards Incident Management Team, navigate through multiple activities and rapidly expanding incident scenarios. The course includes a comprehensive review of the roles and responsibilities of each of the Incident Command System (ICS) Command and General Staff positions, their roles as leaders of their sections or functional areas, leadership and team building, and decision-making under stress. A significant portion of time is spent explaining the Planning Process, each step within the process, the roles and responsibilities of each ICS position within the process, and the deliverables expected from them (based on their ICS position on the team) at the conclusion of each step. Multiple scenarios are used throughout the class to provide the students with opportunities to practice each step of the Planning Cycle, conduct the meetings and briefings, and produce multiple Incident Action Plans (IAPs). Two of the course days include comprehensive incident scenarios that last approximately five hours, that require the team to manage current incident management operations of a rapidly expanding incident, at the same time as planning for, and completing an IAP for
the next Operational Period.

Course Objective:
This course meets the needs of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the National Response Framework (NRF). The USFA O-305, Type 3 All-Hazard Incident Management Team (AHIMT) Introduction course focuses on the importance of developing and operating as a functional Type 3 AHIMT. This course will assist individual responders to perform as viable team members by:
-Learning the basic foundational KSAs necessary to perform in an ICS position on an AHIMT.
-Emphasizing the nature and purpose of a Type 3 AHIMT so that others in the community and emergency services are more willing and able to assist or participate in their local Type 3 AHIMT.
-Demonstrating the critical role that leadership and teamwork skills play in the success of a Type 3 AHIMT.
-Providing a basic framework for building and maintaining critical interpersonal communications and working together as a team member of a Type 3 AHIMT.
-Operationalizing the components of the NIMS and NRF for use in the field.
-Offering practical experience of on-scene operations through extensive exercises and simulations that provide multiple opportunities to perform as members of a Type 3 AHIMT during simulated incidents.
