National Incident Management System (NIMS) for Tribal Government Leaders

UMI served as the logistical coordinator/program developer for ANA in the delivery of NIMS tribal leader training across the United States. Upper Mohawk, Inc. developed a two-day course that covers NIMS and the National Response Plan (NRP). This course also included an introduction course to Incident Command (ICS) as well as review of other disaster response issues. This course was developed to help Tribal Governments meet the requirements set forth by the government calling for all agencies to be NIMS compliant in order to be eligible for Federal funding of pre, during, and post disasters. UMI also wrote a NIMS resolution that tribal governments can use to adopt NIMS for their tribe. We trained individuals from over 46 different tribes.
