DC Water has made arrangements with EPA to provide refresher training on 100. 200, 300, 400, 700 and 800 level ICS courses. Additionally, the instructors will highlight how DC Water utilizes ICS to manage incidents and events. If you have staff who would be involved in your department’s emergency response activities or who may be an alternate in your absence, please feel free to have them register and attend the training. There are no prerequisites to take the refresher training, but it would be helpful if you have taken the classes prior to the training. The instructors will provide information about how to get online certifications for the 100, 200, 700 and 800 courses. ICS 300 and 400 courses must be taken in person.


Why should I attend the Water Sector ICS Refresher Training and Certification?

First, it is vital to understand ICS, as this incident management system is the national standard for responding to any incident anywhere in the U.S. Second, using ICS is required by NIMS. In addition, it is important for utility management staff to understand how larger incidents and events will be managed when several agencies and jurisdictions will be involved in a response.
