Incident Command Scribe Course Amherst Nova Scotia

September 27 12:00 AM - September 30 12:00 AM, 2021


The Amherst NS Police Department will be hosting a four day Incident Command Scribe Course designed for operational scribes, both sworn and civilian, to support police leaders who are required to assume command of police operations in major incidents. The course will focus on instruction for members assigned to an operational support role in record keeping for the Incident Commander. An IC scribe requires necessary knowledge and judgement essential to assist the Incident Commander and record the information during major incidents like a search for vulnerable missing people, public order events, high risk events like barricaded individuals and major events like disasters (IMS) that require an IC.

CCII’s Incident Command Scribe Course will provide education and training in importance of the scribe / recorder function in a major incident and introduce methods and best practices to develop record keeping skills. Scribes will follow the same accredited Major Incident Command curriculum instruction on incident response appropriate for low frequency / high risk, high stress environments where critical decision making is conducted with information and time limitations. This course will also allow the IC Scribe to gain an understanding of the requirements and responsibilities of the Command Triangle, Critical Incident Commander, Crisis Negotiating Team, Tactical Team, Command Post, and Scene Manager in order to understand their own critical roles and responsibilities and become part of the communal team effort and effective resolution of critical incidents.

Please contact Deputy Chief Hunter, Amherst PD, with any questions regarding registration.
