ROCK HILL, S.C. - The International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators, Inc. (IACLEA) will hold a three-day, simulation-based incident command class from Feb. 13-15 at Winthrop University.
The Incident Command System course will last from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. each day in the Withers/W.T.S. Building. The course is for command-level campus public safety, police, and fire and noncampus first responder personnel at the supervisory, mid-level management or command post levels. It will be funded through a grant by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
"We are pleased and honored to host this Incident Command training program," said Winthrop Police Chief Frank Zebedis, who is an IACLEA instructor. "This training program is an opportunity for campus public safety and other emergency responders throughout the region to enhance their preparedness to respond to a variety of potential catastrophic events."
This training class provides a nationally recognized program to standardize the response of campus public safety personnel at the command level and their mutual aid partners to all types of serious incidents. It presents all stages of the National Incident Management System and trains supervisory personnel in the application of the Incident Command System and the Unified Command concept. The training covers all stages of the incident life cycle: prevention, preparedness, response (broken down into three phases), recovery and mitigation, with exercises in a "model campus" environment utilizing a model campus simulator.
