Course Description

The goal of this professional development course, E/L/G 0191 Emergency Operations Center/Incident Command System Interface, is to enable the students to develop an effective interface between the Incident Command/Unified Command and the Emergency Operations Center by applying National Incident Management System principles.  

Selection Criteria: The intended audience(s) are federal, state, tribal, territorial, local level, private industry, volunteer and nongovernmental emergency management personnel who are active in a community's ICS and EOC activities. This course works best when delivered to combined audience of ICS and EOC personnel. The materials were developed with the assumption that audience members may have little or no actual experience as a member of an Incident Command Post staff or an EOC Staff.

  • Explain the course structure and potential ICS/EOC interface challenges.
  • Explain key NIMS concepts, command and coordination systems, and structures.

  • Explain the respective roles and interconnectivity of the NIMS command and coordination systems in coordination.
  • Contrast the typical role and functions of the Incident Command and the EOC during emergency operations.
