Preparing upfront will get resources deployed faster and more accurately


Escalated response

Escalated Response

  • National Model Intrastate Mutual Aid Agreement that compliments EMAC for a seamless escalation of the response.

  • Working with disciplines to develop implementation plans at the intrastate level


Resource typing

  • National Incident Management System (NIMS)

    • Resource: Personnel, teams and major items of equipment available for assignment to incidents.

    • Category: Function where resource is most useful

    • Kind: broad category of like resources, such as teams, personnel, equipment, supplies, vehicles, and aircraft

    • Component: A part of the resource

    • Metric: standard of measurement

    • Type: Level of capability


Mission packages

Mission Packages

  • It is how resources are requested during events!

  • The Step after Resource Typing:
