Class will be rescheduled for 2020
Course Description: This course is designed for a Public Information Officer (PIO) assigned to an incident as a member of an all-hazard Incident Management Team (AHIMT) and local IMT’s, as well as for the PIO assigned to an incident as an Assistant PIO in a variety of capacities. This course will help participants develop a strong set of core PIO skills and the ability to apply them within the context of an AHIMT. This course is also distinct from other information function courses in that it combines elements from both the basic and advanced functions to concentrate training on the fundamental duties and responsibilities of the PIO in an all-hazards environment.
Prerequisite: ICS 100, 200, 300 and 400 – IS-700 and IS-80o
