The Incident Command System (ICS) is required teaching for all law enforcement, emergency government, fire departments, and Homeland Security personnel. Door County veterans practice ICS' protocols and NIMS' (National Incident Management System) terminology so they'll be ready to roll during any natural disaster, terrorist attack, man-made catastrophe, or pandemic. Veterans do NOT  replace professional first responders (fire fighters, law enforcement, emergency government or Homeland Security personnel). Rather, they provide a "fourth shift" when professional responders are overwhelmed or burned out, have exhausted their mutual aid agreements, or they're called to respond to a more serious community crisis. Tested under fire, veterans stand ready to roll when their community is under attack.

Operation Concealed Carry was a testing/training war game focused on safeguarding Sister Bay against a possible terrorist attack, robbery, toxic spill, anthrax scare, or bomb threat. Veterans conducted a vulnerability assessment and stood mission-ready to support housing-in-place orders or an order to evacuate. Veteran followed the same Incident Command and Control protocols required of law enforcement, fire fighters, and emergency government.
Because of the nature of this operation, other than the initial briefing of law enforcement and emergency government, all operation protocols, logs, briefings, written plans, and tutorials are password protected and considered the exclusive property of The Risk Management Learning Center.
Refer to RMLC white papers, case studies, and presentations based on Operation Concealed Carry.
