Event Description

Incident Tactical Dispatcher (INTD)

The course provides a realistic, hands-on approach to mastering the tasks and skills of an Incident Tactical Dispatcher. An Incident Tactical Dispatcher is a specially trained individual qualified to operate in a command post, base camp or at the incident scene in support of a specific incident or tactical operation. Incident Tactical Dispatchers leverage the multi-tasking, communication, accountability, and documentation skills of successful telecommunicators to provide public safety communications expertise and support at planned events and extended incidents such as hostage situations, multi-alarm fires, search and rescue operations, bombings, and active shooter incidents in accordance with FEMA National Qualifications Standards. Incident Tactical Dispatchers may support the Communications Unit as a single resource or as part of an incident tactical dispatch team. This course provides a basic understanding for the roles and responsibilities of an incident tactical dispatcher working in a tactical environment.

This course is designed for experienced dispatchers who are familiar with the Incident Command System and dispatch operations. This course is four days long with an end of course INTD exercise on the fourth day. It is limited to 20 students. Each attendee participates in hands-on training exercises and receives a Position Task Book.
