Incident Command for Community Leaders - Important Training

27 March 2018

Senior town and city officials and other municipal personnel play an important part of emergency preparedness, response, and recovery in most communities. Town Managers, Select board members, Mayors, and other executives who make decisions for town taxpayers are often a necessary part of the disaster response and recovery process.

Understanding the process of emergency preparedness, response, and recovery is critical for those decisionmakers in communities. Time can be lost if responders need to explain emergency procedures and processes during a disaster.

Vermont Emergency Management urges those executives, town officials, school officials, and others to take part in a three-hour training that gives an overview of emergency response. Incident Command System 402: ICS for Executives and Senior Officials explains how responders handle emergencies.

Newly elected or appointed town or city officials, or those who have served for years but have never taken this training, are encouraged to attend one of the many offerings of ICS 402 throughout the month of April. You need only attend one three-hour session.
