*Working Together to Manage Your Disaster: FEMA’s Incident Command System
for Cultural Heritage Institutions*
If your institution had a disaster, how would you coordinate with your
local first responders and other government agencies?
Do you speak their language? Do you understand how your institution might
work with FEMA? Knowing this information in advance could
make all the difference in how quickly your institution is able to respond
to, and recover from, a disaster event.
PDX Alliance for Response is excited to offer training in the first two
modules of FEMA’s Incident Command System (ICS). The training will
you to the basic principles, structures and terminology of the ICS and
provide you with tools and knowledge to work seamlessly with other
institutions and agencies when responding to a disaster.
Scott Winegar will lead our session. Scott is a certified ICS trainer with
over 30 years experience in law enforcement. He has participated in FEMA
responses to Katrina, Deepwater Horizon and other disasters. Previously
the Operations Manager of the Portland Office of Emergency Management (now,
Portland Bureau of Emergency Management), Scott developed and heads

cultural heritage institutions and to learn about current activities and
future training in the region.
