State of Colorado and Texas Incident Management Team Training Opportunity - Golden, CO - March 19, 2010

The Jefferson County and Northwest Colorado Incident Management Teams and FEMA Region VII invite you to a one day presentation by Bob Koenig, State of Texas Incident Management Team Coordinator to be held on March 19, 2010 from 9:30 am - 3:00 pm (lunch on your own) at the Jefferson County Courts and Admin Building (Hearing Room 1) at 100 Jefferson County Parkway, Golden CO 80401.  

Mr. Koenig will provide an overview of Texas All-Hazards Incident Management Teams (IMTs) including their assignments, agreements between Departments and State for Personnel, selection and training of team members and Texas experience and deployments.  

Furthermore, the presentation will include an analysis and discussion with Mr. Koenig on how Colorado might organize points of distribution (food, water and ice or other supplies), what training is needed for IMT personnel supporting points of distributions, what pre-work can be accomplished now to facilitate rapid set-up of points of distribution and a focus on Texas examples and lessons learned.

The discussion will also address liaison opportunities between Colorado and Texas teams, including probable assignments and support and/or relief roles.  Some discussion will also include some pre-planning and information needs to facilitate support of Texas IMTs.

Other topics of mutual interest to the Colorado Teams include an update on the FEMA Region VIII IMT Project, the Colorado State Mobilization Plan and section breakouts and networking.

So, we hope to see you there!  There is no registration necessary, although any questions about the presentation or event can be passed on to Tim McSherry - (303) 271-4901 or via email at
