Emergency Preparedness Training

Preparation is the responsibility of every member of our community. In 2009, the U.S. Department of Education established a set of guidelines called the National Incident Management System Implementation Activities for Schools and Institutions of Higher Education , which requires key personnel to complete the following free online NIMS and Incident Command System (ICS) courses:

  • IS-700.A NIMS: An Introduction 
  • IS-100.HE Introduction to the ICS for Higher Education 

In addition to the above courses, it is recommended that individuals also take the following:

  • IS-100.B Introduction to the ICS

  • IS-200.B ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents 

  • IS-800.B National Response Framework: An Introduction
