National Incident Management System (NIMS)
NIMS ICS 100 – An Introduction to the Incident Command System
NIMS IS 700 – An Introduction to the National Incident Management System
NIMS is applicable to all incidents and all levels of stakeholders, including levels of government, private sector organizations, critical infrastructure owners and operators, nongovernmental organizations and all other organizations who assume a role in emergency management. Elected and appointed officials and policy makers, who are responsible for jurisdictional policy decisions, must also have a clear understanding of NIMS to better serve their constituency. These two entry level courses are required for all emergency response personnel. These courses are required to be completed by ALL ARES members, EMA volunteers, and emergency responders.
