Welcome to our Faculty Mentor's page...
We have over 500 mentors representing most major industries, countries and cultures. Many are active retirees from law enforcement, emergency government, politics, private security, etc. who now have the time to conduct research, offer opinions based on their real word experience, and in every way mentor our faculty. Many prefer to work under cover so you'll not see their name listed anywhere. Some prefer to keep their contact information secret so the email addresses you'll see are routed through our web site. I ask that you respect their wishes and for the most part, don't use any contact information we make public. If you with to have your name moved off our public records, just let me know. Use the faculty mentor input form to the right.  The RMLC  .... Comments & Contributions are Welcome! Click Here! or call me direct!

The Virtual - Incident Command System (V-ICS)

 A RMLC Faculty & Faculty Mentor Briefing!

Goals and Objectives: "Provide fire fighters,  EMTs, law enforcement, emergency government, and Homeland Security professionals with a "training base" resource and the general public with a "Performance Based" tutorial on Incident Command.  

Our Strategic Action Plan...

"Design, develop and deploy web supported Incident Command (IC) templates that can be used by any company, organization, association or group interested in responding to community wide disasters, terrorist attacks, or any life threatening incident. Create training based ICS templates for the public sector, performance based templates  for the public sector and internet based programs to effectively test response protocols and economically deploy response assets.                                                                               Rich Woldt CEO - The RMLC


The Risk Management Learning Center


RMLC Faculty Mentors 2006

"Experience is your greatest teacher!"

"Don't judge anyone's performance until you walk a mile in their moccasins"

The Virtual Incident Command System (V-ICS) is staffed by experienced RMLC faculty who've learned the ICS during the Oklahoma City Bombing, the '95 and 9-11-01 attack on the World Trade Center, 2005 Hurricanes Charley, Ophelia, Dennis, Emily, Ivan, Katrina, Rita and Wilma, tornados in Stoughton Wisconsin , the Town of Dunn, village of Egg Harbor, and less dramatic yet life threatening incidents to include bank robberies, home invasions, extortions, bomb threats, and BLEVEs.

To ensure RMLC conclusions, recommendations, and response protocols work in your "real world," faculty white papers are periodically posted for review by a RMLC "Faculty Mentors." This growing body of frontline, street smart, faculty mentors come from all "walks-of-life to represent both the public and private sectors, their country, community, neighborhood, and personal family unit. Mentors include internationally recognized risk managers and security professionals, community and business leaders, church and school administrators, retired and active military personnel, psychologists, sociologists, as well as convicted felons both currently serving time and back on the street.

Our expressed goal is to create a V-ICS that's endorsed from the top down but built from the "grassroots" or family unit up. Mentor groups are formed around regional RM projects and to support faculty research projects. Following a partial list of mentors monitoring a V-ICS created for Door County Wisconsin. 


Note to Reader: The staffing of the V-ICS only indicates an RMLC faculty person most likely to perform the duties and responsibilities of an ICS position based on career and life experiences. The "My County ICS" recommends staffing based on County government and job responsibilities. We recommend two people be selected for each position and everyone be cross trained. You'll never know who will be available when disaster strikes!

Incident Commander: There is one “Incident Commander (IC) for each incident so all coordination flows to one person authorized to act. The IC should be the one most familiar with the incident. If needed, the IC designates three Command Staff. “Safety” monitors the scene to ensure its safe and all responders are qualified, equipped and ready to roll, “Information” handles the media and makes sure everyone is informed of facts as they unfold. And to ensure everyone know where to go and to who they'll report, the “Liaison” coordinates responding agencies when the IC moves from a “Single Command” to a “Unified Command.”

Operations: Sets up staging areas to assemble response assets and coordinate personnel when the IC requests a “strike” or “mission” operation. For example, a SWAT team might have to strike first to stop a sniper, followed by firemen, EMTs, and transporters on a mission to rescue the injured, followed by engineers and contractors to rebuild the area. The operations section carries out the tactics necessary to achieve the strategic objectives given by the incident command or unified command.

Staging Area(s): Staging areas are used to inventory response assets and assemble personnel at a safe and secure distance from the “Hot Site.” Staging areas are used to equip, coordinate, brief, and deploy response personnel. 

Planning: “Strategic” and “Contingency” planners write “incident action plan(s)” for the duration of the incident based on the incident goals and strategic objectives determined by the incident commander or the unified command. Based on damage assessments and reports from Operations, plans are written for the next operational period which may be 8, 12, or 24 48 hours. During major disasters such as the Oklahoma City bombing, 9-11, and Hurricane Katrina, long range recovery plans for the next 6 to 12 months might be proposed.

Logistics: First determines where the Emergency Operation Center (EOC) and Staging Areas should be located and than makes sure they are properly equipped and ready to occupy. This included providing appropriate table space for Operations, Planning, Logistics, Finance, and other EOC personnel, a separate media briefing room and secured communication links. In addition to monitoring victims, Logistics is responsible to provide housing, food, training and incident supplies for all responders
