Christina Legge completes Emergency Management Training
Christina Legge, PE, provided emergency engineering response services to the Town of Manchester, VT after Tropical Storm Irene in August and September 2011. She has now completed training in ICS 100 (Introduction to Incident Command System) and ICS 200 (ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incident). ICS, or Incident Command System, is a standardized incident management approach used by FEMA and other governmental agencies. Emergency response personnel are trained in ICS and many municipal and state governments are beginning to use ICS for incident management. Christina will be taking additional specialized classes in May and June 2012 relating to public works operations, emergency operation centers (EOC) and GIS applications, as well as ICS 300 (Intermediate ICS for Expanding Incidents). With this training, Christina will be versed in ICS organization, terminology and procedures. She will be able to provide emergency engineering response during natural disasters or other emergency situations without the need for time consuming “on the spot” training. Please call us if you have any questions relating to ICS training or our emergency engineering response services.
