9/11/01 was a life and career changing event in more than just one way. As a result of the attacks, and more so the response to those attacks, President Bush made a presidential declaration that everyone involved in responding to disasters must follow ICS. How does this declaration affect us the end users?

All federal, state, local, tribal, private sector and non-governmental personnel with a direct role in emergency management and response must be NIMS and ICS trained. This includes all emergency services related disciplines such as EMS, hospitals, public health, fire service, law enforcement, public works/utilities, skilled support personnel, and other emergency management response, support and volunteer personnel.

As of July 2006 if you want to receive federal monies (Grants) you must meet the following requirements:

At a minimum everyone in East Fork Fire whether you are Support or Attack must complete IS-700, ICS-100 and ICS-800. It doesn't matter how long you have been a member of East Fork Fire everyone must complete this training.

Without federal grant monies we would not have the remodeled Station 4 or have the HazMat vehicle at Station 9. We would not have put the exhaust systems in all the stations or have the new fire shelters.
