History Of CICCS
  • 1995

SFMO, OES & Cal Chiefs met with 230 Chiefs and Training Officers to discuss the use & implementation of ICS. The 1991 Tunnel Fire (Oakland Hills) & the 1993 California Firestorms after action reports cited ICS training deficiencies. Discussed was the creation of a system to “…..standardize certification and qualifications for ICS positions.”

History Of CICCS

  • 1996

A total of 56 recommendations were developed to enhance fire agencies’ capability to combat wildland fire incidents and provide for safety of personnel. There was agreement that the 12 highest priority recommendations be forwarded to FIRESCOPE for review and implementation on a statewide basis.
