FEMA’s National Integration Center seeking public feedback on 18 NIMS resource typing documents

7 Oct 2020 11:33 AM | Anonymous

FEMA’s National Integration Center is seeking public feedback on 18 National Incident Management System (NIMS) resource typing documents that enhance interoperability and the effectiveness of mutual aid. This national engagement period will conclude at 4:00 PM Central Time / 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on November 6, 2020.

This national engagement period provides an opportunity for interested parties to comment on the draft resource typing documents to ensure they are relevant for all implementing partners.

The release includes 18 various positions and teams for public works, including engineers and debris and damage assessment specialists.

Resource typing is a key component of NIMS and the NIMS Job Titles/Position Qualifications and Resource Typing Definitions define minimum qualifications and capabilities for personnel and their equipment within their assigned teams to manage all threats and hazards, regardless of incident type or size.

These resource typing documents will facilitate the sharing of deployable public works positions and teams at all jurisdictional levels and will support the augmentation of the FEMA workforce during disaster operations. The documents can be accessed at: https://www.fema.gov/emergency-managers/nims/public-works-resource-typing

To provide comments on the drafts, complete the feedback form, and submit the form to FEMA-NIMS@fema.dhs.gov no later than 4:00 PM Central Time / 5:00 PM Eastern Time on November 6, 2020.
