Wyoming All-Hazards Incident Management Team Mission Statement: "To provide qualified All-Hazards Incident Management Teams for the State of Wyoming and its political subdivisions capable of supporting and assisting in the management of natural and manmade emergencies and disasters and acts of terrorism."

The Wyoming Office of Homeland Security in conjunction with the Wyoming State Fire Marshals Office, Wyoming State Forestry, Wyoming Department of Health and multiple state & local resources as well as the All Hazards Incident Management Team State Qualification Review Committee (SQRC) developed the processes for credentialling individuals at the Type 3 level in the State of Wyoming.  The oversight board also developed a training plan, prerequisites of team members and an application process for teams and individuals.  

Background of AHIMT's

An AHIMT is a multi-agency/multi-jurisdiction team for extended incidents, formed and managed at the State, regional or metropolitan level. It is a designated team of trained personnel from different departments, organizations, agencies, and jurisdictions within a state or DHS Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) region, activated to support incident management at incidents that extend beyond one operational period.
