IDT training allows for an innovative and productive use of your dispatchers. It will enhance their daily dispatching skills through an understanding of equipment and fire characteristics. It will also prepare your dispatchers to deploy a communications command post or assist at the fire scene. IDT is a new and proven concept of bringing dispatchers to the Command Post. Standardized training for IDT dispatchers is a must. The California Fire Chiefs Association has formalized this type of training for IDT's within the state. For agencies outside California, we will customize the curriculum to meet your mutual aid and automatic aid agreements. This training will help any dispatcher that has responsibility for Fire Service Dispatching. This class is designed to train agency management and dispatch staff to develop and deploy a rapid-deployment local Incident Dispatcher Team into the field to support local or regional emergencies. Taken in conjunction with an Incident Command (ICS) 200, 300, or 400 class, will qualify the student to participate as an Incident Dispatcher in the field. This class is intended as a train-the-trainer class.
This class will benefit all dispatchers. By understanding the IDT system and the information provided, it will prepare them to better handle a variety of fire situations and equipment deployments. Whether your goal is a deployable team of dispatchers or a better-educated dispatcher; this class will raise their level of knowledge and professionalism.
