Why are Water Sector Intermediate (ICS-300) and Advanced (ICS-400) Incident Command System Training and Certification being offered? In order to help DC Water achieve National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliance and be better prepared to manage emergencies, the US EPA is offering this 4-day training to assist staff in operating as efficiently and effectively as possible during a large incident or event utilizing the ICS.  Training participants will receive certification in both courses, which further enhances NIMS compliance within the water sector.

   Why should I attend the Water Sector ICS-300/400 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.  ICS-300 (Intermediate ICS) and ICS-400 (Advanced ICS) certifications will be available to all participants.
