Simulation Based Initial Response Training
BOWMAC.COM represents two companies, BowMac Educational Services, Inc. (established 1980) and BowMac Software, Inc. (established 1997), which are dedicated to increased public safety on a national basis. The two companies are comprised of a group of individuals, each with between 20 and 40 years of policing, training and management experience in public safety.
BowMac Software has developed REDI™ for Emergencies, a National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliant, web-based emergency planning software for K-12 schools, campuses, municipalities, and utilities.
BowMac Educational Services, has conducted Critical Incident Man-agement Courses using its unique Model City™ Simulator on a national basis since 1989.
BowMac has headed a national effort with the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA)
This is in addition to statewide efforts in Connecticut, New Mexico, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Massachusetts, as well as the cities of Salt Lake City, UT, Sa-vannah, GA, and Metro-Dade, FL.
Initial Response Personnel
The decisions that are made, or not made, during the first thirty to sixty minutes of a critical incident will dramat-ically impact the numbers of casualties and amount of property damage that result.
The course is based upon a set of “common Issues” that responders have encountered during response to critical incidents.
Knowing what those issues are allows for a common strategy to be employed by all responding supervisors and com-mand officers.
BowMac has boiled this down to the “Seven Critical Tasks™” which are taught and exercised throughout the course.
This program represents a combina-tion of classroom instruction and practical hands-on scenarios utilizing simulation exercises, which offer the participant the opportunity to man-age several types of critical incidents utilizing an “All Hazards Approach”.
Participants will assess their individ-ual and team performance during the simulation.
Our emphasis has always been on the ability to use Incident Command principles and common response strategies, rather than to memorize position titles and pass a test.
SIMULATED EXERCISES - As in all BowMac Critical Incident Management programs, ex-ercises will be conducted on a 96-square foot Model City™ Simulator. This elaborate simula-tion system will be provided by BowMac Educational Services and transported to the training site. Use of the simulator provides supervisory personnel the opportunity to get a “field per-spective” while simultaneously performing their regular first line supervisory function.
The class is FREE for officers in the Greater Metro Region
