why do we need an imt
Why do we need an IMT?

NIOSH investigations have discovered that most fire scene deaths can be attributed to breakdowns in the following:

  • Communications
  • Accountability
  • Command
  • Operations
what is an incident management team15
What is an Incident Management Team?
  • An IMT focuses on the not-often used components of ICS:
    • Planning Section
      • Resource Unit (accountability issues)
      • Situation Unit (maps, intel, forecasts)
    • Logistic Section
      • Communication Unit (Com Plan)
      • Medical Unit (Responder Care)

what is the imt s focus
What is the IMT’s Focus?
  • ICS teaches us that Command manages the organization whereas Operations manages the incident.
  • Subsequently, the IMT focuses on assisting with the management of the organization.

IMT User’s Insight

Findlay 07

Ottawa 07

Painsville 2007

quote
Quote

If I could do it again, I would call the IMT sooner. What impressed me was that in less than four hours they had dissected everything, knew the town, and smoothly transitioned to manage everything for me, including all those resources from out of town.

Chief Tom Lonyo, Findlay FD about the response of the Ohio IMT to the 2007 Findlay flood

quote42
Quote

I personally had never been in charge of such a large incident…I found that my staff and I entered the ‘overload phase’ quickly….  The IMT brought knowledge, experience and a fresh and detached view…they allowed us to step back and regroup for the long haul.

The Ohio IMT did not take over and were not critical of, or try to change, what we were doing. Instead, they helped us identify areas where we needed to implement change or improve procedures.

We are also exploring ways to improve communications, resource tracking and safety.

Mark Mlachak, Fire Chief

Painesville City FD

quote43
Quote

Our experience of utilizing the Ohio IMT was truly a positive one.  The local resources felt they could not be affective due to exhaustion. The Ohio IMT gave local officials the confidence that pending missions would be continued without loss of continuity or safety controls.  The Ohio IMT personnel were well prepared…

I would not hesitate to use the team again, and I would whole heartedly recommend the utilization of the Ohio IMT to any other political subdivision that may find themselves stretched beyond comfortable limits.

Steven J. Odenweller, Coordinator

Office of Public Safety

Putnam County, Ohio
