FEMA Education

FEMA has several resources available to help prepare.  The FEMA Emergency Management Institute has many classes available.  Most emerging programs should start with ICS-100, ICS-200, and ICS-700.  Additionally, people who would possibly be in a command staff position should take ICS-800.
