The primary role of the Incident Command Team is to give the opportunity for successful Assessment Development Centre (ADC) candidates at Supervisory, Middle and Strategic levels to demonstrate that they also have the potential to take command of operational incidents.
The team works closely with partners in North, Mid and West and Avon Fire and Rescue Services and the Fire Service College to design, develop and implement Incident Command solutions.
The team represents the organisation on the National Incident Command Advisory Group that feeds into the CFOA lead and also the Hydra/Minerva User Group where support is given and exercises shared. The ICT also give annual updates, awareness sessions and training simulations to the operational tactical groups. They also work with other directorates providing advice and solutions on Incident Command issues.
