This unit covers the competency required to control a Level1 incident through the use of local or initial response resources.
This unit includes the competency to proceed to the incident, to assess the incident, to plan and implement an operational response and post-response activities.
A Level 1 incident is characterised by being able to be resolved through the use of local or initial response resources only. In a Level 1 response the major function is operations, that is, to resolve the incident.
Control of the incident is limited to the immediate area and therefore the operations function can usually be carried out by the Incident Controller. Being relatively minor, the other functions of planning and logistics will generally be undertaken concurrently by the Incident Controller.
No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
