Emergency Response Structure

This page is to inform you about training available for SEMS, NIMS, and ICS. They provide a systematic, proactive approach to guide departments and agencies at all levels of government, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector to work seamlessly to prevent, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of incidents, regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity, in order to reduce the loss of life and property and harm to the environment.

RecommendedTraining

We recommend that all employee should take either ICS 100.b or ICS 100.HE. In addition we highly recommend that supervisors, safety coordinators, and those involved in mission critical function should take IS-700 "NIMS An Introduction". Below are links to the recommended courses.

ICS-100.b - Introduction to Incident Command System, ICS-100

This course describes the history, features and principles, and organizational structure of the Incident Command System. It also explains the relationship between ICS and the National Incident Management System (NIMS). 2-3 hours (including exams) overall length of course will vary for each individual.
