Response Structure

Write a 1,750- to 2,800-word critical incident manual that could be provided to responder personnel for use in an incident.


Create an incident and command response structure for all emergency or public service agencies in Colorado, such as police, fire, medical, and so forth. Ensure the minimal components of operations, planning, administration, and logistics are included and fully developed to four levels. Be sure the manual contains all general information personnel would need for rapid activation and deployment.


Identify specific personnel or positions for each function.


Provide scenario-based training.


Format       The critical incident manual should NOT look like a standard research paper.  It should look like an actual manual or guidebook that would be useful to a first responder to an emergency.
