Homeland Security Assists Emergency Responders with Unveiling
of New Internet Course on America's New National Incident
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Department
of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) announced today a new online course that
will help first responders understand the concepts and
principles underlying the new National Incident Management
System (NIMS) and to begin incorporating NIMS into their
own planning and policies. To streamline coordination
at the federal, state and local levels, President Bush
directed the creation of NIMS, a newly developed, standardized
incident management approach to emergency incidents.
"NIMS establishes standard incident management processes,
protocols and procedures so that all responders - including
those at the federal, state, tribal and local level
- can coordinate their responses, share a common focus
and place full emphasis on resolving the event," said
Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge. "This new course
introduces NIMS in a way that is easy and accessible
to the nation's emergency responders."
The course can be found at: http://training.fema.gov/EMIWEB/IS/is700.asp.
