Event description
This is a special remote-access delivery of FEMA's ICS-300 course. The course length is five *partial* days.

About this event

This course provides training for personnel who require advanced application of the Incident Command System (ICS). This course expands upon information covered in the ICS 100 and ICS 200 courses.

NOTE: This is a remote-access class that will be using the Zoom video-conferencing system. Because of the amount of small-group exercises in this course, unless there are technological hurdles for someone, all students will be **expected** to participate in the class with a live video camera during most of the class (even if it's just from their cell phone).

Intended Audience

This course is open to staff from cities, tribes, counties, state, and federal agencies, special purpose districts, and their private and non-profit partners.

The target counties are King, Pierce, Snohomish, Kitsap, Skagit, Thurston and Kittitas Counties. We have also reserved some seats for anyone that responds elsewhere in the state of Washington, but *not* in the target counties. (There are also a limited number of seats set aside for responders from other states that do not typically respond in the state of Washington.)

Course Objectives

  • Describe how the National Incident Management System Command and Management component supports the management of expanding incidents.
  • Describe the Incident/Event Management process for supervisors and expanding incidents as prescribed by the ICS.
  • Implement the Incident Management process on a simulated Type 3 incident.
  • Develop an Incident Action Plan for a simulated incident.
