Incident Command System Overview for Elected and Appointed Officials

In partnership with the ND Department of Emergency Services (NDDES), ILG is excited to offer a FREE 3-part webinar series to familiarize elected and appointed officials of their role and the role of the Emergency Manager in supporting incident management within the National Incident Management System (NIMS). Upon completion of this 3-part course, officials will be able to explain National Incident Management System (NIMS) tenets and the role of the four command and coordination entities (Incident Command System, Emergency Operations Center, Multi-Agency Coordination Group and Joint Information System) within NIMS. In addition, you will find the following benefits:

  • Better understanding of the roles of responders and emergency managers.
  • Comprehend the role of an Emergency Operations Center in support of the Incident Command System.
  • Know the relationships of support from NDDES and Federal partners as incidents/disasters escalate.
  • Improve communications and stronger working relationships.

*Individuals who complete the G 402 Incident Command System Overview for Executives and Senior Officials will receive a certificate of completion from the ND Department of Emergency Services.

Description: In session three, we will explain the functions and purpose of a Multi-agency coordination group, joint information center, and describe the interconnectivity of the Command and Coordination systems. Also, we will address Senior Officials’ role in preparing for an incident and identify additional resources. Finally, we will summarize key points from the course and wrap up the class.
