NIMS-ICS for the Fire Service (16-hour)

Incident command is a concept given considerable attention within the fire service. This course will help students recognize the importance of an effective system and understand the various components that provide the basis for that system. The requirements necessary to make the system functional will be discussed. With DHS assistance in providing and mandating a single ICS, this Nation’s emergency response personnel will move in the direction of greater management harmony, which will ensure much more effective management of America’s major emergencies. It is extremely important that the students realize that the ICS has application in small and large fire departments; at simple and complex events; and in career, combination, and volunteer organizations. Students will be allowed to compare benefits of the ICS to their own department or jurisdiction to demonstrate to themselves that the effective implementation of the ICS and its subsequent use will have a positive effect on their incident management.
