Incident Management

All Hazard Incident Management Support Team (IMST)

Established and Experienced – Incident Management staff can be deployed and on site within 24 hours to assist in supporting your response and recovery needs.


Immediate actions to save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs are critical from the onset of a disaster. One of the challenges to effective response and recovery is the relatively high turnover and short tenure among officials responsible for response and recovery at all levels.


Effective response and recovery hinges upon well-trained leaders and responders who have invested in response and recovery preparedness, developed engaged partnerships, and are able to achieve shared objectives. The players’ bench is constantly changing, but a concise, common playbook is needed by all.
