FEMA Seeks Feedback on Two NIMS Resource Management Documents

February 28, 2019


FEMA’s National Integration Center seeks public feedback on two NIMS Job Titles/Position Qualifications and Resource Typing Definitions regarding HAZMAT response released today under the Environmental Response/Health and Safety core capability.


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. 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 the incident’s cause or size.

To review the documents and for additional webinar information, visit: https://www.fema.gov/national-incident-management-system/national-engagement.

To provide comments on the draft, complete the feedback form on the webpage listed above and submit the form to fema-nims@fema.dhs.gov.  The national engagement period for these two documents will end at 5 p.m. ET on March 28, 2019.

Thank you for your input and continued support. Together, we make our nation more secure and resilient.




Please help support FEMA’s mission of “Helping people before, during and after disasters.”
