World leading experts in emergency management, Global ICS educates and empowers its clients in the effective implementation and use of ICS through its unique Incident Command Competency Framework.

This framework supports the accelerated development of both organizational and employee level competencies in the real life application of the Incident Command System and Emergency Management best practices.

ABOUT

  • Incident Command Competency Framework

    Although ICS is now well established and has been adopted by many private sector organizations, more often than not, post event evaluations or After Action Reports (AAR’s) indicate certain aspects of the organization’s ICS implementation fell short in some key areas. Inadequate training being noted as one of the most prevalent issues resulting in strategic and tactical deficiencies during a response.

  • Technological Approach

    GISC works closely with some of the world’s leading technology providers to ensure that the goals of effective communication and situational awareness are supported and are achievable even when the worst happens. GICS understands that properly implemented technology starts with clearly defining the underlying emergency management processes and objectives, then adopting the right technology to fit and support those processes and objectives.

  • Real World Experience

    GICS has an extensive network of associate partners that represent some of the world’s leading experts in emergency management. We’ve been involved at senior levels in hundreds of emergencies, including the Exxon Valdez grounding (1989), Queen of the North ferry sinking (2006), the BC Fire Storm (2003), and the world’s largest oil spill during the Gulf War (1991).
