What is the Incident Command System (ICS)?

The Incident Command System is a highly effective, standardised approach to the command, control, and coordination of incident response. It can be used to manage an emergency incident or a non-emergency event, and can be used equally well for both small and large situations. Vulcan Training offers ICS courses which are locally relevant and of high quality.

Incident Command System has been adopted by other countries around the world and the need for a standardised approach to incident management has been highlighted in South Africa, and Africa. While there has been great work to integrate ICS into these regions there is still a long way to go to developing capacity.

Vulcan Training ICS courses are endorsed by the South African Incident Command System workgroup (SAICS) and is based on the United States – Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) courses. The future of incident management in South Africa, and Africa, is the standardised approach – don’t get left behind.
