FEMA’s National Integration Center is seeking public feedback on 109 NIMS Job Titles/Position Qualifications and Resource Typing Definitions.

The National Engagement Period provides an opportunity for interested parties to comment on the job titles/position qualifications and resource typing definitions.
NIMS is a key component of U.S. incident management efforts and enables organizations from across the country to work together during incidents of all kinds and sizes. Implementing NIMS across the nation is a fundamental part of building our national preparedness.
