Training Announcement: NIMS Resource Management (G703)


May 28, 2010


June 15 and 16, 2010; Brewer, Maine

Course Description:

This 2-day course provides the principles, tools, processes, and systems used in the National Incident Management System (NIMS) that incident managers need for timely and effective resource management during an incident. Primary tasks addressed in this course are:

  • Establishing systems for describing, inventorying, requesting, and tracking resources;
  • Activating these systems prior to and during an incident;
  • Dispatching resources prior to and during an incident; and
  • Deactivating or recalling resources during or after incidents.

The course shows that resources, including personnel, teams, facilities, equipment and supplies, are managed through this NIMS system by advance planning, resource identification and ordering, categorizing resources, use of agreements, acquisition management, management information systems, and protocols for ordering, mobilization and dispatching.

The course begins with resource management concepts and principles, and then addresses how to get an organization ready for managing resources in disasters. Next the course focuses on management of resources during an incident and goes on to a section dealing with the complex incident. There is then a section about reassessing readiness in the post-incident period followed by a summary and conclusion.

Target Audience:

County and local emergency management directors and their deputies, IMAT personnel. This program meets the FY 2010 NIMS requirement for resource management training.
