Hospital Incident Command System: 5-Part Training Series

The Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) is an incident management system based on principles of the Incident Command System (ICS), which assists hospitals and healthcare organizations in improving their emergency management planning, response, and recovery capabilities for unplanned and planned events.

NMHA is offering a 5-part, self-paced webinar series hosted by HSS, at no cost to our member hospitals. Each episode within the series breaks down integral parts of the Incident Command System and is geared towards individuals who have already taken ICS 100, 200, 700, and 800.

This program is recommended for:

  • Administration
  • Senior Leadership
  • Emergency Management
  • Clinical Staff


5 Courses in the Series

Each session provides information on best practices, implementation strategies, and balancing theoretical concepts with practical approaches. The course is intended to provide a review for participants who already have experience with HICS. A knowledge check is included at the end of each session to verify lessons learned.
