Part 2: Applying National Incident Management Processes in a Critical Incident

Imagine you have been called to an emergency situation at a large event venue in your area. After addressing the situation, you need to make a presentation to your supervisor explaining the management of the critical incident and how the various agencies worked together.        

Consider a large event (e.g., professional sporting event, concert, large conference, carnival, festival, showcase) occurring at a venue in your area and identify a hypothetical critical incident that might occur during the event.

Create a 12- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation describing how the incident was handled and the relationship between the different governmental agencies, including communication and collaboration, during the incident. Address the following:

  • Describe the venue and event you have selected.
  • Summarize the details of the incident, including the main phases of emergency management.
  • Explain how the different governmental organizations worked together and communicated regarding the incident.
  • Discuss the role of dual-status commanders during the incident.
  • Describe how interagency communication and collaboration were achieved during the incident response.
  • Explain how management, collaboration, and communication during the incident aligned with the guidelines set forth in the National Response Framework.

Cite 2 sources within the presentation.
