    ICS Class Updates

    Incident Command System (ICS) is considered one of the course for members to become prepared for disasters, events, and every day operation. As members of team coast guard, we are first responders to many incidents and as result we are expected to know ICS. In addition to the first call response incidents, we may be asked to deploy to major disasters like Deepwater Horizon or Hurricane Katrina. If this is the case we will need not only the following courses but maybe some extra and the time to learn the basics of ICS is not during an incident when the skill are already in demand but before so when a skill set is in demand you are ready to go, like the Coast Guard motto Semper Paratus "Always Ready".

    Basic/Standard ICS Course Names

    • ICS-100: Introduction to ICS
    • ICS-200: ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents
    • ICS-300: Intermediate ICS for Expanding Incidents
