This six-day course focuses on the duties and responsibilities of the emergency response personnel who will assume the Incident Commander (IC) role in hazardous materials emergencies above the initial response and will implement a National Incident Management System (NIMS)-based Incident Command System (ICS). Based on the current requirements of 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910.120 and the applicable national standards and plans, the program follows three phases of an incident: preplanning, incident operations, and post-incident responsibilities. This course meets the NIMS requirements for ICS-300.
Topics include negligence and liability, planning, NIMS ICS/Emergency Operations Center (EOC) interface, training requirements, and emergency response plans. The student will develop a hazard-based response using risk-based decision-making to develop an Incident Action Plan. The student’s knowledge of the subject is evaluated through written tests and graded scenarios. Evening classes and projects are required.
|Comments||Good background material especially the review of 1910-120 and other regulations governing haz mat ... It taught me a better understanding of an ICS on a much larger scale ... Clarifies how SARA III/LEPC relate to the fire department and importance of reviewing LEPC plan.|
