Waldo County Incident Management Assistance Team (Type 4)

The Waldo County Incident Management Assistance Team was formed in June 2006 in order to provide a trained team of incident command staff to augment the incident command structure formed for an emergency or disaster event. Each muncipality in Waldo County provides an Incident Commander and Operations Officer. The Waldo County Type 4 IMAT will augment the muncipal IC team and provide additional personnel for the Command Staff, Planning, Logistics and Finance/Admin for the first day of operations.

The Waldo County IMAT utilizes a converted ambulance as a mobile command post to establish an Incident Command Post. The Waldo County ICP currently has an inband repeater, a portable repeater, two mobiles with land and sea frequencies, an aviation radio, a mobile data terminal, and satellite and cellular telephone capability.
