This course is a basic Incident Command training program for all-hazards approaches particularly geared toward industrial and municipal situations. The scope of this course is limited to those standards, laws, and regulations that apply to the brigade or department member regarding command at various types of incidents and serves to establish the foundation necessary for additional levels of training.
Many NFPA Standards are referenced in this course, however, the functions that the Incident Commander (IC) will be expected to perform in the workplace are site-specific and will vary from facility to facility and from company to company.
This course is designed to bring personnel to a level of training where they will be able to understand the roles, duties and functions of Incident Command and Incident Management Systems. Upon successful completion of this course the student will be well positioned to pursue additional Incident Command / Incident Management Systems training.
This course consists of lectures, classroom demonstrations, presentations, and table-top exercise simulations.
Introduction to ICS /IMS, roles of the IC, command organization, implementing ICS and Emergency Response Plans (ERP), hazards and risks of employees working in chemical protective clothing, decontamination, incident termination, common mistakes by Incident Commanders, Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and the First Responder, and introduction to the National Incident Management System (NIMS).
