This course provides training on and resources for overall incident management skills for personnel who require intermediate application of the Incident Management System. This course will outline how the National Incident Management System Command & Coordination component supports the management of expanding incidents, as well as describe the incident management processses as prescribed by ICS.
The target audience for this course is individuals who may assume a supervisory role in expanding incidents. This includes Command and General Staff positions as well as Division/Group Supervisor and/or Unit Leader level positions that may be activated during an expanding incident that typically extends into multiple Operational Periods.
Building on the prerequisite courses, this course focuses on ICS for Command and General Staff in complex incidents. This advanced ICS 400 course focuses on senior personnel who are expected to perform in a management capacity in Area Command or Multiagency Coordination System, or as part of an Incident Management Team.
The target audience for this course includes experienced senior emergency management personnel who may perform in a management capacity for major or complex incidents. This group includes individuals who may serve as the Incident Commander, as a member of a Unified Command, or as members of the Command or General Staff, or Multiagency Coordination Group/Emergency Operations Center (EOC) management for incidents that may use an Area Command.
This two-day course is based on the requirements of NFPA Standard 1035 pertaining to the Youth Firesetting Intervention Specialist Level I. This course empowers students with a broad understanding of the knowledge, skills, and abilities the Youth Firesetting Intervention Specialist I should have for a dynamic intervention program. Topics include: The extent of the youth firesetting problem and justification for local youth firesetting prevention and intervention programs, Examination of the typologies of firesetting and the motivation behind firesetting behaviors, Identification, intake, screening, disposition, and follow-up. Youth firesetting educational interventions. This course is for the practitioner who provides services at the program delivery level.
This two-day course demonstrates to students nationally recognized principles that, when used appropriately, can lead to community risk-reduction programs that can measure success in local communities. This course will give students the opportunity to explore programs from communities across the Unite States that have been showcased at Vision 20/20 symposiums. These programs demonstrate what nationally recognized organizations identify as examples of “best practices” in community risk reduction.
In this two-day course, students will practice use of the Incident Command System (ICS) in coordination with other public safety responders.
As a follow-up to ICS-100 and ICS-200 training, this course will present scenarios requiring responders to structure their Emergency Medical Services (EMS) resources within the guidance of National Incident Management System ICS, as appropriate to the needs of the different incident types.
Through simulation and role-playing, students will demonstrate the implementation of EMS components in an ICS at medium- or large-sized incidents.
This course is designed for fire and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) responders who may be designated by the Incident Commander (IC) as an ISO while working within an Incident Command System (ICS). These assignments may occur during firefighting, EMS, special-operations-type incidents, and training evelutions.
This course is an incident-specific, scenario-oriented course deisgned to teach students what an ISO needs to know at an incident. The course uses instructor-led discussion, multimedia activities, and small group discussions to convey instructional points.
This six-day course will assist students in verifying that construction documents comply with applicable building and fire codes for fire protection and life safety requirements.
The goal of this course is to provide the students with the ability to verify that the design of the residential fire sprinkler system complies with national standards and a manufacturer's product data sheets. It does not address differences that may be adopted in any State and/or local ordinances. Discussions will revolve around the differences among the application of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems, 13D, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems in One- and Two-Family Dwellings and Manufactured Homes, and 13R, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems in Residential Occupancies up to and Including Four Stories in Height, and International Residential Code (IRC) P2904 that can be used as models in their own communities.
The students will examine sample plans in order to identify the technical components of residential sprinkler systems and to identify the sprinkler type and its associated Sprinkler Identification Number (SIN). Sample plans and manufacturer's product literature will be used to evaluate sprinkler locations, to verify calculations of sprinkler flow, to determine if the correct number of sprinklers is accounted for, and to calculate the minimum pressure suggested by the manufacturer's specifications.
