Please read through the instructions thoroughly before calling your agency resources with questions. 

These Teams will respond to wildfire and all-hazard challenges throughout the year within Minnesota. Participating as a member of a Type 3 Incident Management team will offer new opportunities for many resources to get involved with incident management at the ground level. Our teams emphasize a professional interaction between team members, cooperators and stakeholders necessary when performing in an emergency and often critical incident situation. We are looking for inspiring leaders with the ability to build a strong team, create solid cohesion and who will use an inclusive approach in leading and mentoring.

Incident Management Team Rotations: MNICS will host up to 3 Type 3 Incident Management Teams based on the number of applicants we receive. These teams will be available on a split option schedule. March 1st – June 15th and September 1st – November 1st with an option to roster a team in the summer months as needed. The team rotation length is 1 week.

Incident Management Team Term: All selected IMT members serve 1 year and will be required to re-apply on an annual basis.
