Why Incident Management Teams Work: Words From A Convert

The use of Incident Management Teams in Law Enforcement is growing and being embraced.  In the past, it was a common practice at an incident for fire and EMS first responders to stage at safe distances while law enforcement handled the incident on their own. As a result of several high-profile incidents, fire and law enforcement agencies have been re-examining the strategies and tactics used at significant incidents to improve outcomes while ensuring the safety of first responders.
