Dear SARES communicators,

at the last meeting Lt. Farley presented an overview of the National
Incident Management System (NIMS). 

	http://www.fema.gov/nims/

It is expected that all first responders will have to go through ICS
training in some form although it is not (yet) mandatory at this time. The
course is available on the FEMA online training site where you can take
the class and take the exam. You may also download the study material
PDF files from there.

If you decide to take the class and the test, please let Bob Gundrum
KG6MOL know in case you pass the exam and become IS-700 certified.

And for those of you who can't get enough of ICS: FEMA hosts on their
Independent Study Program web site additional ICS training courses and 
an ICS Resource Center.
