Two relatively formal chapters to put the COUS in its context and understand how it works.
Two relatively formal chapters to put the COUS in its context and understand how it works:
From the field to the ministries, a repeating pyramid and inter-service organization.
The inter-service roundtable in an operations center: why, how, who and when
Some important concepts with their exercise of application:
From information to intelligence, the power of cross-departmental expertise
Group exercise: "What do you see?", Understand the value of the expertise of the other to transform information into intelligence on the basis of a few scenarios
Civil security operations: the necessary inter-service cooperation
Group exercise: "Changing hats", understanding the other's needs in terms of information based on short scenarios
The importance of the analysis of the intervention area: what are the parameters of the field to integrate depending on the type of operation
Group exercise: "The wise choice", choosing the location of the operations center, the security perimeter, the different zones, etc.
Evacuate an area: why, how, when, with what, who… Inter-service coordination.
Group exercise: “Evacuation! "
Note: the presence of at least one representative of each entity likely to be called upon to work within the operations center (fire department, police, technical services, etc.) is strongly recommended.
