Some types of emergency operations only require the presence of fire department personnel, but large-scale operations often involve cooperation between several organizations. In addition to the fire department, the police department, EMS response teams, Hazmat response teams, government agencies and other types of organizations may be involved in the response effort.

Often referred to as “multi-agency incidents,” these types of operations require a special approach to unified command -- a subject thoroughly covered in Mastering Unified Command (DVD), available from Firebooks. This DVD package addresses each facet of unified command to help parties that are  involved in multi-agency incidents coordinate the best plan of action.

Multi-Agency Focus

Because multi-agency incidents involve the participation of various parties to bring them under control, the Mastering Unified Command DVD delivers information that is useful to organizations besides the fire department. The DVD also contains information that is useful to police, EMS response teams, Hazmat response teams and government agencies, among other parties.

Broad Application

Information from the Mastering Unified Command DVD can be applied to various multi-agency incidents, including those that involve fires, floods, terrorist events, storms, and events involving chemicals, biological agents, radiological agents, nuclear agents, and/or explosives (CBRNE). The DVD’s broad application helps multiple organizations coordinate their response efforts.
