Incident Command System (ICS) Training for Field-Level Transportation Supervisors and Staff

This document provides training materials and guidance for transportation field personnel to help their organizations operate safely in an emergency or traffic management event. This course is intended to review the basic incident command system (ICS) structures and terminologies aimed to ensure safety, personnel accountability, and support for the agency’s financial reimbursement efforts. It teaches five possible roles for field-level transportation personnel at an event or traffic incident: joining an existing incident command as an operational asset; joining an existing incident command as a technical specialist; assuming Incident Command from another entity when all life safety issues have been addressed but transportation facility issues remain; participating in a unified command; or starting an incident command as initial Incident Commander. Its focus is solely on how transportation agency personnel and assets are part of the Incident Command System.The product includes lesson plans, guidance on classroom set-up, complete slide shows with scripts or instructor prompts, instructions for creating materials, and some information about training for adults.
