Who Should Attend
What is an Incident Commander?
An Incident Commander is the person responsible for all aspects of an emergency response including developing incident objectives, managing all incident operations and applying resources as well as being responsible for all persons involved. The Incident Commander must immediately take charge of the event -- The decisions the Incident Commander makes in the first five to ten minutes will dictate the outcome of the event.
The decisions made by the Incident Commander have the potential to change the lives of the people in and around the facility. Therefore, proper and extensive training of not only the Incident Commander, but also the other employees is crucial.
Incident Commander Questions & Answers
Without incident commander training, the individuals in charge will not have a clear understanding of the regulations required during a hazmat response. Nor will they be trained to size up and develop action plans. Companies will ultimately be responsible for all actions taken. Trained incident commanders reduce the cost involved, including loss of life, property and even the business.
