Incident management at a Strategic level.

Course reference: EX008

Course Overview

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

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 fulfil this pivotal role during an incident response.
