EMI Releases Revised ICS-100 and -200 Courses

 

October 21, 2010

 

FEMA's Emergency Management Institute (EMI) has revised ICS 100 and 200 courses to reflect lessons learned since their release. These course are NIMS compliant and use the objectives developed collaboratively by the National Wildfire Coordinating Group, the United States Fire Administration, the United States Department of Agriculture and the Emergency Management Institute.
