Being prepared to handle the complexities of a multi agency emergency response is critical to ensure efficient and safe operations. FEMA has worked nationwide with agencies, emergency response and aid organizations, and volunteers to develop an operational and command structure for event response. As a NCLGISA Strike Team member, understanding how to work within the structure of an event is critical to your safety, the safety of your fellow team members, the emergency responders, and the safety of the public affected by the event. No role in an emergency response is too small or unimportant; therefore, it is critical that as a team we all understand the critical function we can play in supporting the operation efficiently and safely.
