Online Incident Command System (ICS) Training

The Challenge

The Incident Command System (ICS) also know as IMS has been adopted by countries around the world and the need for a standardised approach to incident management has been highlighted in South Africa, and Africa. While there has been great work to integrate ICS into Africa regions, there is still a long way to go to developing capacity.

The Solution

Online Incident Command Training

To assist and aid the development and reach if ICS, Vulcan Training and Vulcan Wildfire Management have developed, online ICS 100 and ICS 200 training.

These courses provide the foundation for higher level ICS training. When various agencies and emergency services work together, all using different command structures, SOPs, terminology, and communication protocols we have seen problematic incident responses. An argument often heard is that “our system works and is almost the same as Incident Command System but with different terminology. Why do we need to change what has worked for us?”. Perhaps you may have a functional system when working with your own staff and personnel but what happens when you bring in other agencies and resources onto your incident OR you offer your assistance to another agency with a different system? ICS ensures different agencies can come together with great effectiveness as they all use a standardised approach, speak the same language and follow the same incident management system.
