Main Conference - Included in your 3-day Conference Pass
"Unified command" is a buzz word we hear all the time, but is it something that is achievable? This session will discuss the true definition of unified command, who should be included, how and when to use it, and simple recommendations on improving your system's use of it. The session will use after-action reports from several active shooter/hostile events including Parkland, Pulse nightclub, and the Boston Marathon as examples of its use, or lack thereof, affecting the management of an incident. We will also hear directly from experts and leaders throughout the country who are advocating for the use of the Unified Command System.
