Check It Out!: Required Training for Federal Grant Money


 
 

| Tuesday, June 26, 2007


Homeland Security Presidential Directive No. 5 orders the Secretary of Homeland Security to develop a "consistent nationwide approach for federal, state and local governments to work together to prepare for, respond to and recover from domestic incident regardless of the cause, size or complexity." This order has resulted in the development of the National Incident Management System (NIMS), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires that agencies be fully compliant with NIMS by 2007.



More info: 800/842-0999,www.efilmgroup.com orinfo@efilmgroup.com. In response to the obvious need for training, Emergency Film Group developed a video training program,NIMS Û Introduction to the National Incident Management System. The 25-minute video, which offers an overview of the command structure and functions as defined by DHS, keeps the viewer's attention by using file footage from interagency command posts at major forest fires and other incidents. Highlights include the roles and responsibilities of the incident commander and command staff, and the major sections of operations, planning, logistics, finance/administration and intelligence. It even includes coverage of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.



A 70-page Leaders Guide includes the full video script, detailed descriptions of NIMS roles, ready-to-use checklists, NIMS-formatted paperwork and a 25-question test.

The video is available in VHS ($425), DVD ($450) and for rental ($150) from the Emergency Film Group.
