ICS 100

ICS I-100 provides a background and history of ICS and discusses why the use of a standardised management system has been adopted worldwide. This course also covers the features, principles and organisational hierarchy of ICS explaining why it is so beneficial in a Southern African context.

ICS 200

ICS I-200 will support your growth and understanding of ICS in order to operate efficiently during an incident or event within the Incident Command System, especially for personnel who are likely to assume a supervisory position.

ICS 300

ICS I-300 explores your role in competently operating within management roles of the Incident Command System (ICS) for expanding incidents. The course builds on your prior understanding of ICS in smaller and initial action incidents and explains the unique qualities of ICS as an event or incident management system in an escalating situation.

Division/Group Supervisor (DIVS)

The Division/Group Supervisor (DIVS) implements the portion of the Incident Action Plan (IAP) pertaining to his or her Division/Group, supervises assigned resources,reports on the progress of operations and the status of assigned resources, and provides assessment and context as input to the shared situational picture. This vital ICS position is in high demand in South Africa. Take a step up into a leadership role while still maintaining a hand in Operations.

Public Information Officer (PIO)

The Public Information Officer (PIO) is responsible for interfacing with the public, media, other agencies, and stakeholders to provide incident-related information, and updates based on changes in the status of the incident or planned event. Incident communication is a critical function. Rapid dissemination of information takes place through social media and todays PIO needs to stay ahead of the communication challenges, work with all the different communication channels and reach all the different audiences affected by an incident.

Task Force/Strike Team Leader

The Task Force/Strike Team Leader typically reports to a Division/Group Supervisor and is responsible for performing tactical tasks as assigned on a division or segment of a division. The Leader reports work progress, resource status, and other important information to his or her supervisor and maintains work records on assigned personnel.

Fireline Safety Training

Fireline Safety Training presented by Vulcan offers participants an engaging environment in which they can take a fresh look at their approach to safety. This must do Fireline Safety Training is required for all personnel participating in wildland firefighting and those who may be subject to assignments on or near the fireline. The intent of the training is to focus line-going, decision-making and support personnel on situational awareness and all issues related to fireline hazards and safety. This training is perfectly structured to form part of annual health and safety training as it ensures that participants have information regarding current initiatives, lessons learned from the past fire season and critical issues for the upcoming fire season.

ICS Simulation Training

Training staff who are involved in incident planning and management is fundamental to an organisation’s ability to handle any type of emergency or incident. Only through operational experience or exercises can you start to consider your planning as reliable and workable. ICS can be daunting at first or if you are out of practice. Simulation training tests procedures as well as make people feel more comfortable in their roles and builds morale. A real benefit of scenario training is that it simulates a high pressure environment without the real life stress and consequences if something goes wrong.

Wildfire and Interface Simulation Training

It is through training that we can rectify mistakes and correct errors so we don’t make them in the field. Simulations are not there to catch people out; they are about focus on procedures, personal development within your role as well as the development of teamwork. They are an excellent form of refresher and operational readiness training.

Scenario Training demands careful preparation. Vulcan will work closely with your company, agency or organisation representative to develop a training experience customised to test your staff, your procedures and the types of incidents you will respond to.

The three main types of scenario based exercises are Discussion Based, Table Top, Live Operations (Such as prescribed burning).
