Trainings offered by INCOSIT

Incident Command Simulation Training (InCoSiT) provides specialized training in crisis management to stakeholders from various administrative entities at tribal, local, state and national levels. In compliance with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) guidelines and with strict adherence to the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and National Response Framework, InCoSiT aims to enhance participants` knowledge in concepts and applications of the Incident Command System (ICS) model adopted by NIMS and endorsed by the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5 (HSPD 5), which has become a national organizational standard in incident management. Therefore, its implementation constitutes a prerequisite to incident management planning. InCoSiT fosters partnerships between law enforcement and other agencies and entities within communities; it offers training under Unified Command to management teams who might face the challenges of preparedness for, response to, and recovery from major emergencies, disasters and potential terrorist threats and activities.
