Emergency Management Roles

Please see attachments for transcript and full description of assignment and follow the instructions.

Discussion 1: Emergency Management Roles

Competencies Addressed in This Discussion

For the purpose of this discussion, view the Emergency Response simulation from this unit’s studies. In the simulation, the fire chief begins establishing incident command before the emergency manager is on the scene. In many cases this will be the norm. The emergency manager is not always on duty 24/7, but there is usually a fire chief or other in command. These are usually the first responding units or immediate backup. This is why it is important to have a basic understanding of the Incident Command System. Many police and fire departments require their personnel to be certified in the FEMA Incident Command System by taking an ICS 100-200 and 700 course. The courses are also required at some police and fire academies. These courses teach the basic principles of what the fire chief is using in this emergency management scenario.
