Incident Command System (ICS)
Hide details for Class descriptionClass description
This one day workshop is presented through a grant from EPA for small municipal system security. Many incidents, whether major or minor, disasters and major emergencies require response from a number of different agencies. Regardless of size or the agencies involved in an incident, all require good management to ensure an effective response and efficient, safe use of resources. Common terminology is essential in any emergency management system, especially when diverse agencies are involved. When agencies have slightly different meanings for terms, it can lead to confusion and inefficiency. ICS takes accepted business practices and applies them to emergency response.

Federal laws require use of ICS for persons responding to hazardous materials incidents.

This workshop will introduce Public Works Employees to ICS structure, terminology and implementation.
