This course is an introduction to the National Incident Management Systems (NIMS) and Incident Command System (ICS). There are no pre-requisites for this course. NIMS is a consistent nationwide template designed to help government, private, and non-government organizations effectively work together at times of emergency. The introduction to Incident Command System (ICS-100) portion of this course focuses on lessons learned since 2006, as well as the history, features and principles, and organizational structure of the ICS. The ICS-100 course was developed jointly with the Emergency Management Institute, National Wildfire Coordinating Group, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the U.S. Fire Administration's National Fire Programs Branch.
This course will describe:
- the intent of NIMS
- the relationship between NIMS and ICS
- NIMS components: preparedness, communication, resource management, and command and management.

- IS-100b (ICS-100) is an updated version of the IS-100a course. The courses are equivalent, but you may want to review the new version of the course if you’ve already completed IS-100 or IS-100a.
This course is an elective in the Roads Scholar I course track.
