Who this course is for

  • Hospital personnel and executives

What you’ll learn

  • Build a Hospital Incident Management Team (HIMT) to be prepared should disaster strike.
  • Attendees practice what they learn based on a local demographic drill.

Time is critical to hospital personnel and executives. We offer a streamlined and comprehensive training program that is cost-effective, highly informative, and maximizes time by segmenting the training throughout the course. The best practice is to build a Hospital Incident Management Team (HIMT) that identifies and trains staff to fill these Incident Command level and Section Chief positions:

  • Three to five people for the Incident Commander
  • Two to three people for the Command Staff and Section Chief Staff
  • One to two people for the Branch or Unit level positions

Cross-training is critical as most organizations have limited staff to fill these roles. Education and opportunities to practice in these positions should be conducted frequently to all those identified as part of the HIMT.

Our training is divided into four segments as follows:

  1. Incident Command and Command Staff
  2. Operations – General Staff Roles and Responsibilities
  3. Planning – General Staff Roles and Responsibilities
  4. Logistics – General Staff Roles and Responsibilities

These sessions are then followed by a drill where specific local demographics are utilized and practical use of the day’s training is applied.

We've worked with these and dozens of other partners across the U.S.
