Incident Command for Executives
I-402 introduces the Incident Command System (ICS) and provides the foundation for executive understanding and participation in the ICS. This course describes the history, features and principles, and organizational structure of the Incident Command System, including the relationship between the Incident Commander and Agency Executives. Course participants will be better prepared to function within an ICS environment.
This course will require about two hours for presentation. More time will be required if agency specific material is added. The course is intended to be delivered in a lecture format presented by an ICS Canada training provider.
This course provides a basic understanding of ICS, unified and area command, and multi-agency coordination to those persons responsible for establishing or implementing policy, but who normally are not a part of the on-scene ICS organization. The course also discusses responsibilities and information transfer between Executives and Incident Commanders. The target audience includes executives, administrators, and policy makers involved with emergency planning and response or recovery efforts.
