Logistics/Finance Section Training Webinar


Logistics provides the tools for the entire remainder of the incident response to do their job.  Without Logistics the work does not get done.  From the Services and Support Branches comes the ability to meet incident objectives.

Finance/Administration not only pays for the event as it is progressing, it also tracks costs, provides incident costs to local, state and federal organizations; handles claims; and engages in cost recovery.  The Finance Section is almost always the last to be called and, far and away, the last to go home.  Effective Finance/Administration allows organizations to obtain the logistical support they need and maximize recovery of costs expended.

This training will address the functions of the Logistics and Finance Sections and how those Sections support the overall response.
