EM 196 Advanced Incident Command System (ICS)

COURSE BACKGROUND

As incidents become larger and more complex, involving multiple agencies and/or jurisdictions, there is a need to employ special aspects of the Incident Command System (ICS) to manage the incidents effectively. This course is intended to train personnel who may be assigned to large incidents in the critical aspects of major incident management and area command.

  • Select and develop a command structure that is appropriate for a major incident.
  • Identify factors that may require expanding the command structure and select an appropriate method for expansion.
  • Identify potential issues regarding coordination and communication with higher- and lower-level command structures, and develop strategies for preventing and/or resolving the issues.
The total time for this course is approximately 24 hours.
