Just-in-Time POD Training for Queen Anne's County,
By Joshua Carlyle

This seems to be a training tool that was specifically designed for an exercise.  I don't see a value in it for JITT, except for the exercise it was designed for.  It could be used as a basic framework for an introduction to PODs and ICS as the majority of it is basic ICS.
