Description

ISBN: 9781428359932

Uses a major, real-life, contemporary event to teach key large-scale incident management concepts. This book places you in the Incident Commander's seat for the EQ chemical fires that occurred in Apex, North Carolina, in October 2006: an event that lasted three days, shut down an entire city, and displaced 17,000 citizens. Using this large-scale incident as a running example of how critical components of successful incident management are actually applied in real life, it provides detailed insight into important topics in the field.

Coverage begins with pre-planning and preparation, emergency plan development, and conducting community hazard assessments. The next part discusses implementation of NIMS as a part of daily operations, incident action plans, and complex NIMS for large catastrophic events. With this unique, real-life approach, the book is both engaging and instructional, leaving you with a solid understanding, not only of large scale incident management concepts, but also how to apply them. A key feature of this book is a CD-ROm with sample documents and PowerPoint presentations to help officials guide large-scae incident plan development in their own communities. Many photos and charts.
