Incident Command System Leadership (Mar 26-27)

Emergency events and integrated response requirements are increasingly dependent on energy company operations to provide core support in emergency management situations. The National Incident Management System is a structure for management of large-scale or multi-jurisdictional incidents. It is being phased in at the federal, state and local levels. Eventually, any jurisdiction seeking federal Homeland Security grant money will have to demonstrate that it is NIMS compliant. Within a utility organization, the Incident Command System strengthens the company's response to avoid emergencies developing into crises. WEI's ICS Leadership program supports our Members as they build utility-based ICS training programs for their companies, using examples and sharing training materials to efficiently and effectively implement and maintain ICS in their organizations.
