Day-3 of the AH IMT LSC course today feat #FDUL #MED #COML

Great start to Day-3 of our FEMA All-Hazards Incident Management Team Logistics Section Chief course.

Welcoming the class this morning was Ohio Task Force-1 Team Leader Evan Schumann.


Over the years, Ohio Task Force-1 has been deployed to numerous national disasters.


You know me, I’m always proud of our entire state.

Their involvement with many others USAR teams across the country is critical in keeping the nation safe.


Today’s topics to includes:

  • Food Unit Leader (FDUL)
  • Medical Unit (MED)
  • Communications Unit (COML)

Key positions in the Service Branch under the Logistics Section Chief (LSC). 

(That was your quick ICS online lesson for today. Reference your ICS Form 207 for more info)

Numerous agencies contributing great info today. Sharing of ideas are key.


Additionally, we have several Tennessee Task Force Team members in our class. Great disaster experience and sharing of ideas for any LSC.


DYK: Tennessee Task Force-1 is the most frequently deployed FEMA USAR Team in the nation.

Lots of discussion on resources and what kinds of equipment will be needed to support the BOO (Base Of Operations) as well as staging areas and keep personnel adequately fed.

Feeding Incident Management Teams seems like an easy task, but when you really look at providing healthy options and meeting all dietary options isn’t as easy as you think.


Bonus points for staying within budgets and caloric intake too.

And then allocating the resources neeeded to maintain and regulate these supplies are key piece in any disaster response.

This disaster response stuff ain’t easy!


Looking forward to Thursday’s class which will include deployable resources and equipment. What logistician doesn’t love that kind of stuff!?!?!
