Incident Management Team

BCFS EMD's Incident Management Team (IMT) is an aggregate of some of the nation’s top experts in mass fatality, community preparedness, health care system preparedness, community recovery, healthcare system recovery, medical material management and distribution, emergency operations coordination, mass care and medical surge. IMT members have responded to every major critical incident in the U.S. in the past 12 years, including the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, the H1N1 flu pandemic, Flight 587 Queens; the Reno Air Races, the Haiti Earthquake and countless hurricanes, tornados, fires, floods, hazardous material spills and earthquakes, and other national and international events. 

The team consists of medical and mental health experts, disability policy and rights advocates, former fire and police leaders, national emergency planning and training experts, legal professionals, academicians, research and policy professionals, and public health veterans. It also includes former department leaders from FEMA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

All members of our multidiscipline all-hazards IMT are trained and certified in National Incident Management Systems (NIMS) and Incident Command System (ICS). Our IMT can integrate into your existing operational structure to support your response or can manage your entire incident through delegation of authority.
