Management Working Group


  • Work Groups formed and populated in the spring of 2004
  • Progress limited by large number of deployments in summer and early fall.
  • Changes in NDMS administration ultimately lead to a more focused mission and buy-in by all parties


  • Scope of Service statements for all team types (S)
  • DMORT/DMORT-WMD Field Guides approval
  • DMORT cadaver dog program
  • Physical fitness standards development (Submitted)
  • Individual and team deployability guidelines development (S)
  • After Action Report standardization
  • Cache labeling standards development


  • Conference calls with TCs of DMAT, DMORT and VMAT to develop list of concerns. Calls to re-occur quarterly
  • Approved revision to on-line training curriculum and set team completion standards for deployability.
    • Establish a single, general CORE curriculum, named NDMS CORE, a part of the NDMS web training, as standard curriculum for all NDMS team members-DMAT, VMAT, DMORT and other specialty teams

Goals for the coming year:

  • Further develop the communications conduit between NDMS management and the teams
  • Continue to document policies and procedures used in NDMS so they may be better understood by team management.
  • Develop a stronger liaison with FEMA Logistics and other departments within DHS so that NDMS issues can be more effectively addressed. (Admin./Finance WG??)


  • Develop a strong liaison with the Area Coordinators
  • Assist in any way possible to resolve team sponsorship issues and to promote NDMS team relationship with local and state EM and first responder community
  • Stronger more collaborative AAR process
