|National Incident Management System
NIMS embodies the "best management practices" of the existing Incident Command System, and standardizes a nationwide approach for Federal, state and local governments to work together effectively, enabling a national policy for a single all-disciplines, all-hazards plan. The Department of Homeland Security requires adoption of NIMS as a condition for receiving Federal Preparedness Assistance Grants beginning in 2005. Acrobat PDF File

|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.
