Incident Command System
Clackamas Community College’s Fire and Emergency Management program offers National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) and/or FEMA certificates upon successful course completion.
Our instructors have extensive wildland, structural and emergency management experience at the local, state, national and international level.
Participants will learn how to organize and manage a large, complex incident or event from preparedness, through mobilization and developing an incident action plan, to demobilization after stabilization of the incident.
Course Delivery Methods
