NIMS for EOCs (DVD)

By Emergency Film Group; Reviewed by Mayer Nudell

***** NIMS for EOCs. By Emergency Film Group, www.efilmgroup.com; DVD, $395 purchase, $150 rental.

The National Incident Management System (NIMS), the federal government’s approach to crisis response, has become so institutionalized that any emergency manager working for any level of government must be familiar with it. Those expecting to closely work with government agencies in crisis situations must also understand the system. In addition, organizations with their own emergency operations centers (EOCs) now need to plan and structure their EOCs in compliance with NIMS.

The Emergency Film Group has created a training and familiarization package for government personnel at all levels to learn or review the essentials of NIMS and the related matters associated with emergency response. NIMS for EOCs has compressed into about 30 minutes the essential information regarding how a NIMS-compliant EOC is designed and functions to support incident command and crisis team decision-making.

The complete package includes an additional CD-ROM containing reference materials, slides, quizzes, and other materials that will allow it to be a full training session or in-service review session. Those new to the emergency management field will gain a firm foundation and those in mid-career also will find the material here to be helpful.Mayer Nudell, CSC (Certified Security and Safety Consultant), is an independent consultant on crisis management, contingency planning, and related issues.
