Utility ICS Training (Mar 21-22)

The Incident Command System (ICS) is becoming widely adopted as a best practice to manage emergencies in a variety of different industries. Certain industries have led the way such as fire, hospital, and military, and have been operating under the ICS structure for years. This training offers unique utility specific ICS training using utility examples and is led by WEI member instructors who lead the ICS structure at their utilities. The program is offered once a year for individual registrations and is also regularly hosted by WEI member companies to provide a unique, individualized training experience for their own employees.
