Delaware Type III
All Hazard Incident Management Team (DE IMT)

IMT LogoThe mission of the Delaware All-Hazards Incident Management Team (DE IMT) is to provide personnel who are trained, experienced and certified as incident management specialists and organized to assist, support and coordinate emergency response, incident recovery or planned special event operations within the State of Delaware. These teams and members serve at the discretion of DEMA and deploy only when an official request is made to the Director of DEMA and the Director approves deployment.

The DE IMT provides members with qualifications in key command and general staff positions. The knowledge, skills and abilities that team members receive, in a minimum of 2 ICS positions, are valuable skills they can use every day in their daily jobs. The teams serve under the command and control of the host jurisdiction upon deployment for response to local jurisdictional emergencies and pre-planned events. They integrate into the affected jurisdiction’s ICS structure. The DE IMT is intended to support the response/recovery operations at the incident.

As an all volunteer group the DE IMT is recruiting applicants from State and Local agencies. Applicants and their State or Local agency Director must agree to a 2 year commitment in order to attend training, exercises and incidents.
