NWCG & NIMS ICS Classes

In addition to in-person deliveries, we have converted many courses to a virtual delivery when and where we can meet the requirements of NWCG and FEMA.

Clackamas Fire is partnered with Clackamas Community College (CCC). CCC has a memorandum of understanding with Pacific Northwest Wildfire Coordinating Group (PNWCG) to deliver NWCG wildland fire courses. All of our courses and instructors meet or exceed NWCG standards PMS 310-1 and PMS 901-1.

We also have an agreement with the Oregon Office of Emergency Management to deliver FEMA NIMS ICS and Position Specific classes.

Please view the schedule below.
