Due to the coronavirus impacts to travel and restrictions on public gatherings, the April 8, 2020 Public and Private Utility ICS/NIMS Training in McPherson, Kansas has been POSTPONED indefinitely.

There is no fee to attend this course, but please pre-register so we can obtain an accurate headcount.

Workshop Description:

This one-day Incident Command System (ICS) and National Incident Management System (NIMS) workshop, which is sponsored by the U.S. EPA Water Security Division, will help water, wastewater, gas and electric utilities to better understand ICS, integrate with other first responders within an expanding ICS structure, and implement NIMS concepts and principles that will help utilities provide mutual aid and assistance to one another. The specific courses offered as part of this workshop are:

  • IS-100.C – Introduction to the Incident Command System

  • IS-700.B – An Introduction to the National Incident Management System

Why is ICS/NIMS Training being offered?

Feedback from utilities, states, U.S. EPA regions, and other stakeholders indicates that water sector-specific ICS and NIMS training remains a priority.

What is ICS?

ICS is a standardized, on-scene, all hazard incident management concept. ICS allows its users to adopt an integrated organizational structure to match the complexities and demands of single or multiple incidents without being hindered by jurisdictional boundaries.

What is NIMS?

NIMS is a consistent nationwide template that enables all government and non-governmental organizations to work together during domestic incidents. NIMS requires all agencies to use ICS when responding to incidents.

Who Should Attend?

Small, medium and large water, wastewater, gas and electric utilities, water sector trainers, state drinking water primacy agencies, state wastewater permitting agencies, and federal workers with an active role in water sector emergency response should attend this training.

Contact Hours:

An application will be submitted for Kansas water and wastewater operators to earn training hours toward their license renewal requirements for their participation in the entire event.

Training Questions:

Please contact Will Keefer, Horsley Witten Group (U.S. EPA Contractor), at or 508-833-6600 if you have any questions about the training event.
