Homeland Security Presidential Directive - 5 (HSPD-5): Management of Domestic Incidents enhances the ability of the United States to manage domestic incidents by establishing a single, comprehensive national incident management system.
The development of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the National Response Framework (NRF) are principal components of the HSPD-5 directives.
One key component of HSPD-5 was the requirement that all Federal response personnel be trained in NIMS and the NRF. The OFRD online modules provide the basic framework for the Incident Command System and the Department's response to emergencies.
In order to remain consistent with HSPD-5 and to leverage the national standard for NIMS training, all officers are being directed to complete specific courses at FEMA's Emergency Management Institute (EMI) online independent study program.
Required EMI courses:
* IS-200 should be completed in lieu of the IS-200FW course (not available) at this time.
