Pocket-size guide to disaster response
After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Department of Homeland Security created the National Incident Management System (NIMS) to standardize federal, state and local government incident response. To complement first responders’ training in the system, Tigard, Ore.-based Informed Publishing has created a pocket-size book, “NIMS: Incident Command System Field Guide,” to help hospital staff, police and fire departments, and other emergency crews respond effectively and consistently to natural or man-made disasters. The compact book contains color-coded tabs for quick reference to information, sample planning schedules, forms and a glossary. To order the $21.95 guide, visit www.InformedGuides.com or call (888) 624-8014.
