In a large or mass casualty disaster, emergency responders may be delayed due to the overwhelming number of emergencies. Your school should be capable of performing an initial response to save children’s lives and begin the process of recovery. And nothing is better than knowing what to do and having the right supplies on hand.
Disaster Survival Skills has been providing top quality emergency supplies for the last 28 years. All the emergency kits are professionally designed by Captain Wayne Bennett (Ret.), a retired fire fighter and an accredited trainer for American Heart Association, CERT, and FEMA.
What is Incident Command System?
ICS (Incident Command System), NIMS (National Incident Management System), SEMS (Standardized Emergency Management System) – these are all standard chain of command and control strategies to manage and coordinate an emergency response. To put it in simple terms, it’s a way to handle a large disaster.
Here’s a simple explanation with video of what are these systems.
