Free ICS- 700, 100, and 200 Training
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. See Skip's bio at bottom of this page.
