    NIMS training ?

    Who has done FEMA IS-100 & IS-700 training either in 1/2 class or on-line ?
    and has anybody gone beyond this minimum ?
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I have done IMS 100 & 200 and NIMS 700. I did 100 in Fire I class and then IMS 200 in town training a year later. I did the NIMS online after a 2 hour town training session. In New Jersey all firefighters and EMS must have NIMS 700 by the end of 2006 I believe. They are also pressing it on DPW and town managers.

    Personally I think it was a waste of my time considering IMS 100 & 200 is just about the same thing NIMS 700 is. It's just a managment scheme, though I agree it is a good one, but noone really knows how to use it most effectively. And honestly when you're on a small or medium scale scene you don't even use NIMS it's really there for when you have to interact with State or Federal level OEM officials.

    Earlier this year, every single County employee (1400+) at my jurisdiction had to take 100 and 700. Some went to classes, but most of us took them online.

    thanks for the reminder - I'm supposed to go online and go up to 700 before September, I think?

    How many planners are their City/Town's Public Information Officers?

    LAW-Ree has been through the training and she brags about it to me all the time.
