This weekend I took a 21 hour incident command class with members of the Buechel Fire Department, a national weather service meteorologist, and two firefighters from Lyndon Fire Department and Eastwood Fire Department. The NIMS 300 class a was taught by Les Bandy, Assistant Director of Bullitt County Emergency Management. Great group of guys and great instruction. After 9/11 a nationwide incident command system was established. And then there was Katrina. These classes are being taught nationwide to learn from those disasters.
