All-Hazards-IMT Facilities Unit Leader (FACL) Course (L-971)

The 40 hour course will help students establish the essential core competencies required for performing the duties of the FACL in an all-hazards incident. The course walks students through general information, including an overview of the Logistics Section and information on incident mobilization, initial situation awareness, and unit management.  It also provides detailed instruction in setting up and maintaining incident facilities, including facilities infrastructure, services, layout, and security. Each unit contains a discussion-based exercise and there is a capstone tabletop exercise at the end of the course to give students hands-on practice functioning as a FACL.
