October 2-6, 2017 (5-DAY CLASS)

Course Sponsors: The Metropolitan Emergency Services Board-Metro Region EMS System

Course Description: This course is designed by the USFA, as a series of simulation exercises and instruction for incident management team members. The simulations are designed to test the students in their functional knowledge as well as their ability to function as a team. Instruction is provided to enhance their abilities to interact, communicate, make decisions, improve risk management and reduce errors.

This is a five-day course serves as a basic introduction to the activities and processes of a USFA Type 3 AHIMT. The ideal number of participants is between 24 (divided into three teams of eight) and 40 (divided into four teams of 10 or five teams of eight).

The overall goal of “Type 3 AHIMT” course is to develop state, regional and tribal IMTs to function under the National Incident Management System during a large and/or complex incident or a major event. This course is designed for those who are assigned to function in a Type 3 IMT during a large/complex incident, typically extending into multiple operational periods.

This course meets the needs of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the National Response Framework (NRF). The USFA Type 3 AHIMT course focuses on the importance of developing and operating as a functional USFA Type 3 AHIMT.

Course Objectives: This course will assist individual responders to perform as viable team members by:

  • Demonstrating the goals of NIMS and NRF.
  • 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 within various components of 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.
  • Offering practical experience of on-scene operations through extensive exercises and simulations, as well as through post-course refresher training, by providing students with the opportunity
