Fire and EMS Leaders Urged to Attend EMS Functions in ICS Course
The Tidewater and Peninsulas EMS Councils are offering a series of the National Fire Academy's EMS Functions in ICS courses. This course presents scenarios requiring responders to structure their EMS resources within the guidance of NIMS 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 system at medium- or large-sized incidents. We recommend this course for all senior and supervisory fire and EMS leaders as well as any responder. Prerequisites are ICS 100 and 200.
