Making Sense of the National Incident Management System
Compliance with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) is a critical piece of your community's preparedness programs, but has anyone really explained how public health activities fit into the NIMS frameworK? You may have heard that your preparedness work should be "NIMS compliant" but what does that mean for you, working daily on the frontline of public health?
Participants in this program will learn the basics of NIMS and related Department of Homeland Security (DHS) initiatives. The program focuses on practical "Take-home" information for local and state public health personnel seeking to learn more about NIMS and NIMS compliance in the future.
