NIMS Resource Management (G703)
October 27, 2015

This 1-day blended learning course provides the principles, tools, processes, and systems used in the NIMS that incident managers need for timely and effective resource management during an incident. Primary tasks addressed in this course are:

  • Establishing systems for describing, inventorying, requesting, and tracking resources;
  • Activating these systems prior to and during an incident;
  • Dispatching resources prior to and during an incident; and
  • Deactivating or recalling resources during or after incidents.
The course shows that resources, including personnel, teams, facilities, equipment and supplies, are managed through this NIMS system by advance planning, resource identification and ordering, categorizing resources, use of agreements, acquisition management, management information systems, and protocols for ordering, mobilization and dispatching. The course will focus on group activities provided for classroom participation and certification.

Mike Grant from MEMA will serve as facilitator with local subject matter expert adjuncts.
