National Incident Management System Website
EMI replaced its Incident Command System (ICS) curricula with courses that meet the requirements specified in the National Incident Management System (NIMS). EMI developed the new courses collaboratively with the National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG), the United States Fire Administration and the United States Department of Agriculture.
Below are the NIMS compliant courses and suggested order for ARES students. ALL ARES MEMBERS are requested to complete these four courses on line or elsewhere. They will likely become mandatory for credentialing in the near future.
- IS-100.b - (ICS 100) Introduction to Incident Command System
- IS-800.b National Response Framework, An Introduction
- IS-200.b (ICS 200) ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents
- IS-700.a National Incident Management System (NIMS), An Introduction
EMI encourages organizations to begin using the NIMS compliant courses immediately.
These courses are now mandatory for ARES ECs and above. AEC and general membership are encouraged to become certified in these as well. There are several other on line courses that you may take from NIMS that will build on your skills to interface with our served agencies.
