The Asian Disaster Preparedness Centre invites you to attend a one week resident course on “Incident Command System (ICS) for Disaster Management” from 10-16 August 2009 in Phuket, Thailand. This is the first time ADPC has offered an ICS course, and one of the few places in Asia an ICS course is available.
The course offers an in-depth explanation of ICS structure and helps you learn to use ICS to manage an incident. To see the basics of ICS, have a look at these slides from the US Environmental Protection Agency. The outline of the course is in this course brochure. Visit the ADPC website for more information.
The faculty includes emergency management experts from ADPC and the U.S. Forest Service, supplemented by experienced international practitioners and experts from different organizations and government institutions across the world. The IAEM Asia Council expects to contribute faculty to the program. IAEM member Mr. Falak Nawaz is Training Director at the ADPC.
