This week you will engage in a virtual scenario where you will play the role of an Emergency Manager who is preparing for a mass gathering event. You will interface with different members of the Incident Command System and will observe and influence how they interact with each other in managing any incidents that may happen. This is intended to give you a view of how all roles come together to function as a team and prepare you for your final project in the course.
Afterward, please post on the following topics:
- What are some ways that you see the principles of Incident Command demonstrated in this simulation, and some ways they could have been implemented better?
- Do you feel Incident Command is more important before or after an event? How did you feel the scenario did or did not align with your view?
- Effective Incident Management depends on teamwork among individuals and agencies, in assigning and executing responsibilities. What possible challenges did you see in the scenario that would need to be handled in the Incident Command System?
Please write a minimum of 450 words for your due by Jan 12th, APA style format, and a minimum of 3 references.
