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    3/6/2004

Simpler method for CPR coming
In what may prove to be the biggest shift in emergency care of cardiac arrest in 40 years, cities across the country are leading a move away from the familiar practice of using mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

In its place, the cities are recommending simple chest compressions - pushing down repeatedly on the victim's chest - to mimic a steady heartbeat. The emergency medical directors who are behind the shift say research in Seattle and Richmond, Va., suggests it will save many lives. (Related story: People die in just a few seconds lost)

The movement became a full-fledged national trend last week at a meeting of emergency medical services (EMS) medical directors from 21 of the nation's largest cities. From USA Today    2/24/2004

ARES Vest
Food for thought from the EMCOMM West Bulletin:

"I am attaching two photos of the vest that we have established here in Thurston County (Washington) as a uniform piece of attire. As you can see there are two pockets on the front that will hold radios or whatever.
We do not allow very many patches to be applied to it. Note my name and call, the Thurston County Patch and the ARRL patch. On the back is a communication patch and a Velcro section on the upper back that allows the placement of placards that deal with the event or activity or your name and call.
