Andy Powell

The owner and creator of the IDLH Tactical Worksheet® is Andy Powell. As a line District Chief Incident Command is not only my job but my passion. The IDLH Tactical Worksheet® was developed after many years teaching Incident Command. It was soon recognized that the fire service and individuals were all over the board on how to keep accountability in the IDLH environment. After many years and thousands of scenarios in the CTC the IDLH Tactical Worksheet was developed. Based on your feedback the IDLH Tactical Worksheet is continually being updated to ensure your department is able to keep accurate accountability in the IDLH environment. Thank you so much for the support from my department and all the individuals that have contributed to the board and continue to assist in making Accountability in the IDLH a priority.


I have been in the fire service for 20 years and have held numerous positions; Lieutenant, Captain, Safety Officer, Training Officer, Battalion Chief, and currently line District Chief/Shift Commander.  I developed and manage the Command Training Center overseeing all aspects of Incident Command Training. I have an MBA in Project Management and hold numerous certifications including Blue Card Instructor and ICS 400.
