Incident Management Assistance Team Functions: Jason Cates (Deputy Chief – Oakbrook Police Department and Commander of DuPage County IMAT) and Rich Chiarello (Commander – Round Lake Beach PD and Commander of Lake/McHenry County IMAT)
As agencies are being faced with more complex incidents, the need for well-trained, experienced experts in the field of incident management are becoming more necessary. Recently, ILEAS has been funding FEMA training in an effort to create Incident Management Assistance Teams (IMAT) in the various regions of the state, for the purpose of assisting agencies when a complex incident overwhelms their resources and capabilities.
Jason Cates, who serves as Deputy Chief of the Oakbrook Police Department, and as the Team Commander for the DuPage County Incident Management Assistance Team, and Rich Chiarello, who serves as a Commander for the Round Lake Beach Police Department and the Team Commander of the newly-formed Lake and McHenry County Incident Management Assistance Team, will present the purpose, capabilities and functions of the IMATs, as well as activations procedures. It should be noted, Will, Kendall, and Kane Counties are currently in the process of training an IMAT as well.
