Incident Management Assistance Team (IMAT)

IMAT was developed to provide a group of highly qualified personnel readily available for response to a major incident, disaster, or long-term event as support staff for the Incident Commander. The intent of establishing this team is to provide command staff support during large scale, complex, and long-term incident or pre-planned event. It is not the function of this team to take the lead as the Incident Commander, rather to support the authority having jurisdiction by providing staff for selected positions within the Incident Management System and to assist the Incident Commander in achieving a positive, coordinated and documented conclusion to an incident.
