CRMJ 220 - Incident Command System

(3,0) 3 Credits

Prerequisite(s): CRMJ 120 - Introduction to Homeland Security & Emergency Management .
This course examines the concepts and principles of the Incident Command System (ICS), which is recognized as an effective system for managing emergencies. The CIS has been adopted by several states throughout the country as their standard for emergency management. As the ICS gains wider use among law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services personnel, its application is being studied by anyone who may be called upon to function in an ICS environment. This course includes a large number of scenarios, examples, and opportunities for students to apply what they have learned. The National Incident Management Systems (NIMS), which is a comprehensive, national approach to incident management at all jurisdictional levels and across functional disciplines, will also be examined. Students who successfully complete this course will be prepared to take the final examinations for IS-195 and IS-700 certification from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
