Fiscal Agent for Iowa’s Incident Management Team (IMT) Program

Purpose

The Iowa Incident Management Team (IMT) is a cadre of multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional professionals, activated to support incident management at large or complex incidents, disasters or special events. The IMT has been developed at the state level to provide support to local officials who become overwhelmed during a long-lasting disaster event. The team serves in a support function, filling in for fatigued personnel and providing technical advice. Through their local Emergency Management Director, a local incident commander can request an IMT to either perform incident support or incident management of the overall emergency.
