|IS195 Basic Incident Command System - EMI Independent Study Program
The Incident Command System (ICS) is recognized as an effective system for managing emergencies. Several States have adopted ICS as their standard for emergency management, and others are considering adopting ICS. As ICS gains wider use, there is a need to provide training for those who are not first responders (i.e., law enforcement, fire, or emergency medical services personnel) who may be called upon to function in an ICS environment. This Basic Incident Command System (ICS) Course will begin to meet that need. The course has been developed as self-instruction but can also be delivered, with the use of an instructor, in a classroom. The course includes a large number of scenarios, examples, and opportunities for students to apply what they have learned.

|Ham Radio Online - Using Solar Power
Solar PV is ideal for powering Amateur radio equipment because PV panels are almost always designed to charge 12 volt battery systems. Coincidently, most Amateur radio equipment is designed to operate from 12 volt power supplies. Naturual diasters such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornados, severe storms and blizzards all knock out commercial power systems. Because ham radio is often used for both primary and backup and communications in times of disaster, its nice to have a reliable source of power to keep your radios running.
