Task Force Leader

The Task Force Leader course is designed to provide the participants with the knowledge, skills and abilities to understand the responsibilities of a Task Force Leader for a CBRNE-capable Type 1 Urban Search and Rescue Task Force. This course is also appropriate for those that would be a Task Force Leader for a Type 2 or 3 US&R task force and/or strike team. This course addresses the administrative and operational requirements that a Task Force Leader is faced with during an incident response. The Task Force Leader will learn the tasks of coordinating and supervising the readiness and deployment of a team of specialists and managers within the six major functional areas of a task force: command, logistics, planning, search, medical, and rescue. Participants learn the interdependence of the six major functional areas and how to effectively manage those interactions.
