EMSI is pleased to announce the recent award of a contract with Fairfax County, Virginia, to provide training and exercise support for the National Capital Region (NCR) Incident Management Team (IMT) and public safety agencies in Fairfax County, a continuation of the work we have performed since 2008. Under this contract, EMSI will utilize Type 1 and Type 2 nationally qualified ICS practitioners and instructors to develop and deliver:
• Training for IMT and EOC members
• ICS position-specific training
• All-Hazards IMT training, including USFA O-305
• Individual and team performance evaluation courses, such as ICS-420 and Advanced All-Hazards Incident Management (AAIM)
• IMT leadership training
• HSEEP compliant exercises
Formed in 2004, the NCR IMT is a multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional, multi-discipline Type 3 All-Hazards IMT comprised of over 100 highly trained professionals from regional partnering jurisdictions in the NCR. Due to the threat of natural and man-made disasters, the NCR-IMT is comprised of members from a cross section of agencies, including Emergency Management, EMS, Fire, Law Enforcement, Public Health, and Public Works. EMSI has worked with the NCR IMT since 2008 and has conducted several full-scale exercises for the team. EMSI has also conducted Incident Command System (ICS) position specific training, Advanced Incident Management Team (ICS-420) training, and ICS Practical Application Exercises for the NCR IMT.
A unique aspect of this contract is that the terms and services can be extended to several dozen other public entities in the NCR, creating a streamlined contract vehicle for other government entities to work with EMSI. Interested agencies should contact EMSI for additional information on the scope of services and applicability of this contract.
