The Acadiana Amateur Radio Association in conjunction with the Lafayette 
Science Museum is hosting  an introductory INCIDENT COMMAND TRAINING 
class.  If you plan to assist in any way with emergency communications,  
disaster preparations, or disaster relief pre or post event, taking this 
coarse is the first step.  Most EOC's, OHSEP offices, and NGO now 
require anyone working with them to have completed ICS-700, 200, and 
100.  The course is open to anyone, civilians, law enforcement, firemen, 
Red Cross and Salvation Army volunteers, HAM Radio operators, ARES 
members, military personnel, etc.  This is your chance to take ICS- 700, 
200, and 100 in a class room setting instead of sitting in front of a 
computer for hours plus you get to meet like minded individuals.  But, 
you must still take the test online.

The instructor will be L.E. "Skip" Breeden AB5SB.  Skip is a GOHSEP 
approved instructor, has over 30 years emergency management experience, 
and has been on the ground for events ranging from Hurricane Andrew 1992 
to Isaac 2012.  Skip's bio is attached if you care to view it.

If you can't make the February 20th.  ICS coaurse I am organizing the 
same ICS Course for March 11th 2016 at the Rayne Civic Center.  It just 
so happens this is the same location and day that our hamfest ( Rayne ) 
starts.  The times for the ICS coarse will be the same, so you will be 
able to walk out of the ICS class and into our hamfest which opens to 
the public at 3PM.  If you don't want to leave the property from lunch, 
I'm working on Cafe CQ serving plate lunches for the coarse attendees.  
If you want to stay for boiled crawfish on Friday night you will have to 
preregister and pay for your crawfish.  Watch for Herman's email with 
more details.
