      New York State Water Sector ICS/NIMS Training

      Workshop Description: This one-day Incident Command System (ICS) and National Incident Management System (NIMS) workshop, which is sponsored by the U.S. EPA Water Security Division, will help water and wastewater utilities to better understand ICS, integrate with other first responders within an expanding ICS structure, and implement NIMS concepts and principles that will help utilities provide mutual aid and assistance to one another. The specific courses offered as part of this workshop are: IS-100.C – Introduction to the Incident Command System IS-700.B – An Introduction to the National Incident Management System Why is Water Sector ICS/NIMS Training being offered? Feedback from utilities, states, U.S. EPA regions, and other stakeholders indicates that water sector-specific ICS and NIMS training remains a priority. What is ICS? ICS is a standardized, on-scene, all hazard incident management concept. ICS allows its users to adopt an integrated organizational structure to match the complexities and demands of single or multiple incidents without being hindered by jurisdictional boundaries. What is NIMS? NIMS is a consistent nationwide template that enables all government and non-governmental organizations to work together during domestic incidents. NIMS requires all agencies to use ICS when responding to incidents. Who Should Attend: Small, medium and large water and wastewater utilities, water sector trainers, state drinking water primacy agencies, state wastewater permitting agencies, and federal workers with an active role in water sector emergency response should attend this training. Contact Hours: An application will be submitted for New York State water and wastewater operators, as well as Professional Engineers to earn contact hours toward their license renewal requirements for their participation in the entire workshop. Training Questions: Please contact Will Keefer, Horsley Witten Group (U.S. EPA Contractor), at or 508-833-6600 if you have any questions about the training event.
