NIMS Training

On February 28, 2003, President Bush issued Homeland Security Presidential Directive-5. HSPD-5 directed the Secretary of Homeland Security to develop and administer a National Incident Management System (NIMS). The NIMS provides a consistent nationwide template to enable all government, private-sector, and non-governmental organizations to work together during domestic incidents. HSPD-5 requires Federal Departments and agencies to make adoption of the NIMS by State and local organizations a condition for Federal preparedness assistance. Osage County adopted NIMS as its all hazards incident management system in September 2008 (Osage County Ordinance # 2008-01) in order to meet the requirement established in HSPD-5.

The NIMS Training Matrix 2012 is the Missouri Department of Public Safety, Office of Homeland Security minimum recommended levels of training for National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliance for emergency responders (paid or unpaid) within the state of Missouri regardless of discipline. The term emergency responder refers to anyone in state or local government, paid or unpaid, that has an active role in the response or recovery phases of an emergency or disaster. The director, chief executive or chief of each response organization is responsible for compliance within their respective organization. The same chief executive will designate those members of his or her organization that require the mid-level supervisor or senior-level response manager training. Only staff identified that have a role in emergency or disaster response require NIMS training.

These courses are the baseline for NIMS compliance and do not exempt responders from attending any discipline specific ICS/IMS courses determined necessary by his/her chain of command.

IS-100, IS-200, IS-700 and IS-800 courses may be taken online. ICS 300 and ICS 400 must be taken in a classroom environment.

IS-701. IS-702, IS-703, and IS-704 are recommended for EOC staff members.

All of the online classes can be taken from the FEMA Independent Study Program.
