ICS 191-Emergency Operations Center/Incident Command Systems Interface

The course provides an opportunity for emergency management and response personnel to begin developing an Incident Command System (ICS)/Emergency Operations Center (EOC) interface for their communities. The course reviews ICS and EOC characteristics, responsibilities and functions and depends heavily on activities and group discussions to formulate an interface. The materials were developed with the assumption that attendees may have little or no actual experience as a member of an Incident Command Post staff or an EOC Staff.
