What is Incident Commander?
Incident Commander is a NIMS-compliant training tool for Homeland Security. The game puts you in the role of incident commander, challenging you to coordinate a multi-agency (fire, police, EMS, HAZMAT, public works, operations, planning, finance, and logistics units) response using the National Incident Management System (NIMS) protocol. Work in single player mode to control all units yourself, or assign specific unit command to up to 16 participants and tackle the impending catastrophe as a unified team before the situation spirals out of control.
What Are the Current Applications of the Incident Commander Technology?
BreakAway partnered with the Department of Justice to create Incident Commander. Its current use is to train users to learn and apply incident command protocol in scenarios that include severe storm recovery, chemical spills, courthouse bombings, and active shooters in a school building.
