  • FYI- Quote from Ben McGrane and FACT team:
  • “There is a template in development, however, we don’t have that many so we prefer to go EERA via ITEAM to hire.”
  • Bottom-line: Incident requests EMT’s, have your Buying Team hire through local Fire Departments
  • IMS Steering Committee conduct an AAR at season end.
  • Request each Dispatch Center to open a WILDCAD incident titled:
  • IMS Dispatching
  • Capture in the log any type of issue that comes up with the IMS teams, independent members, etc.
  • Will request the reports at season end.
  • Sort for similarities
