Mandated Training on the National Incident Management System and the Incident Command System for Hospitals and Health Care Systems
The Hospital Preparedness Program requires hospitals that receive grant funding to train their leadership in the National Incident Management System and the Incident Command System. This training is required for hospital emergency program managers and for personnel who are likely to assume an incident command position as described in the hospital’s Emergency Management Plan.
To help hospitals comply with this mandate, CHA offers this free web course to California hospitals, with grant funds obtained from California Emergency Management Agency (CalEMA).
Developed by Kaiser Permanente’s Healthcare Continuity Management Department, this course is approved by the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services as an equivalent Federal Emergency Management Agency course.
This course provides the training required to comply with the NIMS Implementation Activities for Hospitals and the grant activities including:
ICS 100: Basics of ICS
ICS 200: Applying ICS to Health Care Organizations
IS 700: Introduction to NIMS
This course is required for:
Emergency Preparedness Committee Members
Emergency Program Managers
Any personnel who are likely to assume an incident command position described in the hospital’s Emergency Management Plan
Any personnel that would assume a leadership role in emergency preparedness, incident response or the Hospital Command Center (Hospital Emergency Operations Center).
