Who We Are
The Pitkin County Incident Management Team (PCIMT), under the direction of the Pitkin County Sheriff, was established to organize and support the local Incident Commander in the management of any local jurisdiction’s most serious, complex and costly incidents. Incidents are managed in a safe and cost-effective manner with incident objectives, resource values, as well as social, and environmental issues as a priority. Our focus is to manage your incident so you can attend to your staff, your citizens, and your family. All activities are conducted in a manner that ensures the safety of all personnel and the general public.
The PCIMT has managed numerous incidents in and around Pitkin County with great success. Recently the PCIMT managed Pitkin County's response to COVID-19, an assignment that lasted almost 24-months. In the winter & spring of 2021, the PCIMT developed and implemented a mass-vaccination administration plan and managed that incident for almost 6-months.
Most notably, the PCIMT was the initial incident management team on the 2018 Lake Christine Fire in Basalt, CO. Additionally, the PCIMT has managed the Winter XGames, an extreme winter sports event with over 115,000 attendees, and 120 public safety personnel to great acclaim.
