Who Should Take This Course?

Employees who are new to the Incident Command System or those that are looking for a general overview and refresher of the Incident Command System. Personnel this online course will benefit:

  • Emergency Response Team members
  • Crisis management personnel
  • Security personnel
  • Company executive officers
  • Environmental Safety and Health personnel
  • Facilities managers
  • General staff


During most emergency situations, the use of a scene management system has been shown to improve coordination between responders, reduce confusion and panic, and diminish negative impact to the organization. Whether the event is a chemical spill, earthquake, tornado, gunman, bomb threat, fire, or other emergency, there are common event management and command tools that will make a difference. In addition, the desire for good public and media relations, threat of liability, genuine concern for employee welfare during an emergency, and some Federal and State laws all require that pre-emergency planning and incident command systems be put in place and followed.
