Event Description: 

The following was forwarded by Janice Hopkins KJ4JPE. The text is quoted in
its entirety:
    Any licensed amateur operator that is interested in Amateur Radio
Emergency Service (ARES) is invited to attend a presentation on two of the
basic FEMA ICS courses. This will be a slide show presentation with group
discussion followed by an online exam from the FEMA web site. These courses
will be held on Nov 16, 2013 from 08:00 - 16:00 in the Onslow Emergency
Operations Center, 1180 Commons Drive North Jacksonville, NC 28546
    Please contact me [Jerry Jones-ed] for registration or more information.
    The facility can hold up to 50 people but I do not know how many
workstations will be available at this time.
    Courses presented will be;
IS-700.A: National Incident Management System (NIMS) An Introduction. This
course introduces and overviews the National Incident Management System
(NIMS). NIMS provides a consistent nationwide template to enable all
government, private-sector, and nongovernmental organizations to work
together during domestic incidents.
IS-100.B: Introduction to Incident Command System, ICS-100. EMI has revised
the ICS 100 course to reflect lessons learned since its release in 2006.
This course is NIMS compliant and uses the objectives developed
collaboratively by the National Wildfire Coordinating Group, the United
States Fire Administration, the United States Department of Agriculture and
the Emergency Management Institute. Note: IS-100.b is an updated version of
the IS-100.a course. If you have successfully completed IS-100 or IS-100.a,
you may want to review the new version of the course. For credentialing
purposes, the courses are equivalent.
