Prepared by the National Incident Management System Consortium Model Procedures Committee
The second of two publications by the National Incident Management System Consortium Model Procedures Committee, this manual covers incidents pertaining to wildland fires, hazardous materials incidents, USAR/structural collapse incidents, and other types of large-scale incidents. The primary advantage of using this publication as opposed to free publications from government sources is that NIMSC publications go well beyond simply providing information on the ICS framework. These publications go the next step and apply ICS to specific types of incidents. These examples can be used in training personnel to do the same: take ICS and efficiently apply it to the incident at hand.
