Getting the Most Out of ICS Training - Industry Centric Courses

Incident Command System (ICS), originally developed in California in the 1970’s, is a standard methodology for command, control, and coordination for emergency response.  Today ICS provides a common operating picture for All Hazards situations. With years of experience in ICS, The Blue Cell has trained thousands of First Responders and Consequence Managers throughout the Country in the principles and application of ICS both in-person and virtually.  


Although the curriculum of ICS is controlled and standardized nationally, discussions and activities can be tailored to the audience. With our large instructor cadre, The Blue Cell regularly leverages instructors with specific backgrounds to deliver industry focused classes. This maximizes student participation and retention by discussing situations the participants are most likely to face. 

Recent industry focused ICS trainings have included but not limited to:

  • Municipal Fire
  • Wildland Fire
  • Law Enforcement
  • Health and Human Services
  • Agriculture
  • Emergency Management
  • Military/DOD
  • Railroad/Transportation
  • Hospital (Hospital Incident Command System -  HICS)
  • Utility and Power
  • Venue and Special Events

What do students and client organizations say about industry centric classes?  Just take a look at some of the recent feedback:
