Incident management at a Tactical level.

Course reference: EX004

Course Overview

This course is aimed at staff within your organisation who are / may be required to operate at a Tactical Level (formerly Silver Commander) during an incident response.
Often staff from many non-blue light agencies who are required to operate at a Tactical level during an incident, have totally different day jobs from that of a Tactical Commander.
Tactical level commanders are an integral part of overall C3 (Command, Control, Co-ordination) of any response. They will support the Strategic (formerly Gold) commanders and be responsible for directing the Operational Commanders (formerly Bronze) elements of the response.

Any incident that occurs there will without a doubt be a delay in the Emergency Services arriving, so you will find yourselves as the “Zero” responders.
That response will include the filling of the “command gap” until the Emergency Services arrive and then a combined response will be initiated following the JESIP principles.

It is essential that you have trained staff to fulfill this pivotal role during an incident response.

The content is aligned to the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for the role of a Tactical Commander.
