Incident Management Team
The Jefferson County Type III Incident Management Team (IMT) is a multi-agency team that responds to large all-hazard situations in Jefferson County and the surrounding areas.
The Fire Management Officer assists the Sheriff's Office in preparing for and responding to man-made natural disasters. These disasters are not limited to structure and wildfires but require a partnership with local fire departments and adjacent counties.
