SCHEDULE

Workshop 1: Incident Command System (ICS) – Its Relevance for the Museum Professional

How does your agency manage emergencies? Although ICS is widely used by fire, EMS, and law enforcement personnel it is not as common for museum professionals to use the core principals of ICS when responding to emergencies. This Workshop will provide an overview of the issues that drive the usages of ICS and the misunderstandings of those who currently do not use it. Why did agencies decide they needed ICS? Does ICS really apply to non-responders? Isn’t it complicated to learn if you don’t use it daily? What ICS training do I need?
