The Air Support Group Supervisor (ASGS) course is intended to provide local- and state-level emergency responders with an overview of key duties and responsibilities of an ASGS in a Type 3 All-Hazards Incident Management Team (AHIMT). The course walks participants through general information, including an overview of the fixed wing, rotor wing, and military operations, as well as information on incident mobilization, initial situational awareness, and unit management. It also provides detailed instruction on responding to the incident and the command needs of the incident, as well as emphasizing the importance of risk management and safety considerations.

This course is an instructor-led training that supports learning through discussion, lecture, and active participation in multiple exercises that provides a realistic, scenario-driven approach to mastering the skills required of a ASGS. Complex experiential exercises and discussions will afford participants the opportunity to act as a Supervisor while connecting all information learned back to real-world application.
