FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY RELEASES DRAFT NATIONAL INCIDENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM TRAINING PLAN
The draft National Incident Management System (NIMS) training plan has been posted in the Federal Register for comment. NIMS provides the template for federal, state, tribal, and local governments; the private sector; and nongovernmental organizations to work together to prepare for and respond to emergency incidents.
NIMS training is one component of comprehensive emergency management programs, which require continuous planning. The NIMS Training Plan is designed to define the national NIMS training curriculum, core competencies, and personnel qualifications, as well as to assemble and update the training guidance for available NIMS courses.
This draft NIMS Training Plan would supersede the Five-Year NIMS Training Plan, originally released in February 2008.
