On May 11, 2006, at 1300 hours, FireEngineering.com will present “NIMS – Command and Management” – a Webcast presented by Gary E. Seidel, Fire Chief, Hillsboro (OR) Fire Department.
This program will focus on the incident command system (ICS) component of NIMS. ICS is a standard on-scene, all-hazards incident management system already in use by structural and wildland firefighters, hazardous materials response teams, technical rescue teams, swiftwater rescue teams, emergency medical teams, as well as law enforcement response teams. The ICS component of NIMS will serve as the standard for the incident organizational structure and in the management of all hazard incidents. “NIMS – Command and Management”.
