A look at the Urban Search & Rescue System and local ICS
If you have been following recent events with the tragic condominium collapse in Miami Florida, you most likely have seen the Urban Search & Rescue (US&R) Task Forces at work on the rubble piles of the devastated area. Who are these teams and where did they come from?
We are proud to be able to say that one of our earliest students in ICS has ascended to the position of FEMA administrator. In our virtual offerings we have been able to expand our student body to an international audience with students from the UK, UAE, Greece, Hong Kong, Canada, Liberia and across the Caribbean. Our virtual training courses have really taken off since we fully partnered again with our home State of Colorado/Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. We have re-established an equally unique NGO / private partnership of service delivery with the Colorado Wildland Fire and Incident Management Academy. In 2019 we were surprised and honored to find one of the first intellectual products that we ever created, our All-Hazard complexity analysis, is now included in the new ICS position specific training curriculum at the Federal level.
