Nursing Home Incident Command System (NHICS)
Taking ICS training is a great step in making sure that you have a well-developed emergency plan. It teaches how to plan, organize, and staff during an emergency, as well as logistics and handling financial matters. Also, ICS is something that fire, police, emergency responders, and healthcare managers are trained in—therefore, ICS would be beneficial to learn and be “on the same page” as others in the community if an emergency would arise.
ICS 100, 200, 700, 800 courses are free, available online, and are geared toward all staff.
ICS 300 and 400 are taught in the classroom and are intended for those individuals who would assume the role of Incident Commander in the event of an emergency. ICS 100, 200, 700, and 800 are prerequisites for ICS 300 and 400.
