For those who are unfamiliar with what an IMT is, it is simple. An IMT or Incident Management Team is an American Fire term for a group that responds to generally to a wildland fire response. It can also respond to a wide-range of emergencies such as fires, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunami, HAZMAT materials or other human-caused incidents. (Source: wikipedia) For this post, we are referring to them in the wildland interface. There are various “types” of IMTs, such as a Type 5 (local village and township level), Type 4 (City, County or Fire District level), Type 3 (State or Metropolitan area level), Type 2 (National and State level) and Type 1 is also at the National and State levels but with those with the most training and experience. This team is part of the Incident Command System or known as ICS.
