The course includes several scenarios to enhance learning and provides a firm basis for being able to participate successfully in ICS-400 and other advanced-level ICS/command and control courses. This course can be used as a precourse module or as remedial training for the classroom version of ICS 400; this course alone does not meet the training requirements for ICS 400. NOTE: H467-ICS-400, Advanced ICS for Command and General Staff, Complex Incidents, and MACS, is available through State Fire Training Agencies. It is a 2½-day classroom course.

ICS Simulation Series: Casper Hall Dorm Fire (Q0327)

0.1 CEUs

 

Enroll in Q0327 »

The student is presented with a more complex fire and rescue problem in this simulation. It depicts a fire in a six-story college dormitory. This occupied structure is of ordinary construction which presents a severe rescue problem, in addition to ventilation and confinement challenges. The student is involved in the decision making of the establishment of Divisions and Groups as needed and assignment of crews or units to perform the following tasks: primary search and rescue, establish a water supply, initiate fire attack, ventilate the structure, set up rehab, conduct a secondary search, and conduct overhaul on the fire building. The student is required to implement mass casualty incident procedures due to the number of victims, plus the necessary command structure to handle the triage, treatment and transport of victims.

ICS Simulation Series: Ranch House Fire (Q0324)

0.1 CEUs

 

Enroll in Q0324 »

This simulation involves a scenario depicting a single-story, single-family dwelling and presents the student with a "room-and-contents" fire and basic rescue problem. The student is involved in the decision making and assigning of crews to operational tasks on the fireground. The student will make task assignments to each unit or crew as it arrives to accomplish the necessary steps for life safety, incident stabilization, and property conversation. The student is required to assign crews or units to perform the following tasks: conduct primary search and rescue, establish a water supply, initiate fire attack, ventilate the structure, set up rehab, conduct a secondary search, and conduct overhaul on the fire building.

ICS Simulation Series: Mansion Fire (Q0326)

0.1 CEUs

 

Enroll in Q0326 »

A simulation depicting a very large, multistory, single-family dwelling presenting fire spread and ventilation issues and a more complex rescue scenario. Due to the resource intensity of this incident, the student is given a second alarm assignment. The student is involved in the decision making and assigning of crews to operational task on the fireground. The student is required to establish Divisions and Groups as needed and assign crews or units to perform the following tasks: verify that a primary search was conducted, establish a constant water supply, initiate fire attack, ventilate the structure, establish rehab, ensure a secondary search is conducted, and execute overhaul on the fire building. The residence is a 1960’s large (6200 square feet) two-story wood frame platform construction with a lightweight truss roof assembly covered by plywood sheathing and composite shingles.

ICS Simulation Series: Nursing Home (Q0424)

0.1 CEUs

 

Enroll in Q0424 »

This simulation presents the student with a kitchen fire in a two-story nursing home, non-combustible (20,000 sq. ft.) with roof construction of bar joist, asphalt with concrete floor construction. There are many occupants in the building, including visitors. Nursing homes of all manner fall into the broad category of "health care occupancies." Health care occupancy is generally defined as "an occupancy used for purposes of medical or other treatment or care of four or more persons where such occupants are mostly incapable of self-preservation due to age, physical or mental disability, or because of security measures not under the occupant's control."

ICS Simulation Series: Strip Mall Hostage/Arson Fire (Q0328)

0.1 CEUs

 

Enroll in Q0328 »

The shopping center is a single-story, multi-occupancy structure. It's built of ordinary construction with a common attic and a steel bar-joist roof. The shopping center is divided into three fire areas by firewalls. This scenario exposes the student to Unified Command with some unique considerations. Initially it is a police problem, and fire assumes a secondary role. After the situation is stabilized, fire assumes a lead role. Many of the considerations and actions are not encountered in day-to-day operations. This scenario exposes the student to Unified Command with some unique considerations. The progression of the hostage incident and the fire incident will be controlled by the decisions made by the appropriate roles. The student’s goal is to successfully coordinate as the Fire Department Battalion Chief in a Unified Command situation with the Police Department and manage the fire incident by performing the following tasks: conducting a primary search and rescue, establishment of a permanent water supply, initiation of a fire attack, ventilation of the structure, establishment of rehab, conducting a secondary search, and ensuring a complete overhaul on the fire building.

ICS Simulation Series: Townhouse Fire (Q0325)

0.1 CEUs

 

Enroll in Q0325 »

The student is presented with a little more complex fire and rescue problem in this simulation, one that might be found commonly in a townhouse, row house, garden apartment, or condominium. The student is involved in the decision making and assigning of crews to operational tasks on the fireground. The student is required to assign crews or units to perform the following tasks: conduct primary search and rescue, establish a water supply, initiate fire attack, ventilate the structure, set up rehab, conduct a secondary search, and conduct overhaul on the fire building. The residence is a 1980’s wood frame platform construction with a lightweight truss roof assembly covered by plywood sheathing and composite shingles.

ICS Simulation Series: Wildland Fire (Q0617)

0.1 CEUs

 

Enroll in Q0617 »

This simulation is designed to expose the novice student to some of the problems/issues associated with a wildland/urban interface fire. The scenario starts with a small fire in a field of unharvested grain. This field is situated in a rural area near structures and forested areas. The fire spreads through the field and into the forest, threatening several structures spread out in this area. There are multiple levels of response within the Incident Command System (ICS), requiring the establishment of division, mutual-aid response, and special resources. This simulation allows the student an opportunity to be the Incident Commander of a wildland/urban interface fire.
