May 19 & 20, 2015
08:30am to 16:00pm
Location (Training Room 110 A)
DESCRIPTION:
This course meets the standard established by the National Incident Management System (NIMS) Integration Center for courses as taught by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for Incident Command Staff Officers, General Staff Section Chiefs, Strike Team Leaders, Task Force Leaders, Unit Leaders, Division/Group Supervisors, Branch Leaders, Emergency Support Function Representatives and Multi-Agency Coordination System/Emergency Operations Center staff. The target audience includes all individuals who may assume a supervisory role in an expanding incident. This course expands upon information covered in ICS 100 and 200 courses. (Both are pre-requisites for ICS 300.) The course also allows those identified personnel to comply with ICS level 300 training. This is a requirement for those jurisdictions that choose to comply with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) to ensure they continue to qualify to receive Federal Preparedness Funding Grants. We are recommending that jurisdictions identify middle management personnel to take this IS 300 course who are going to be functioning in a supervisory position during an incident/event.
