Taking an all-hazards approach, courses are designed for state and local jurisdictions, as well as public and private sector providers. Training begins with preparedness and coordination planning and progresses through incident response and on to recovery. Executive programs train elected and agency officials about roles during disasters, and provide hazardous materials and wide-area search strategies and techniques for emergency responders. Simulation-based training is available for incident management, jurisdictional crisis management training and multi-agency coordination.

Those acronyms sometimes are used inter- changeably, albeit incorrectly, in part because some of the differences are subtle and some of the management categories are similar. Both systems have been in place and in use for 30 years or more.
Both have evolved and expanded since the terror attacks of September 11, and both have been amended with the benefit of lessons learned from experience using NIMS and ICS. State and local government departments aligned themselves to their federal counter- parts in adopting the FRP for state and local emergency planning.
For nearly 10 years the FRP stood as the recommended guidelines. Newer versions of the FRP eventually followed, but the basic plan remains at the core of the later iterations: Also during the last decades of the 20th century, another related system was evolving: Originating out of the wild land firefighting sector as a solution for better resource management among multiple agencies and across state lines, the ICS is applicable to all manner of incident command situations.
ICS essentially is an emergency services personnel management system for on-scene responders and Emergency Operations Centers EOCs as well as for such secondary responders as public works, hospitals, and so forth.
It is a flexible system that also assigns particular positions to particular functions and can be expanded as needed depending on the demands of the situation.
However, NIMS covers the full range of support and advanced planning activities that link multiple agency and jurisdictional resources to the specific support requirements of responders and of the community at large for the duration of the situation as well as during recovery.
As such, it is the blueprint by which an emergency management agency and an EOC function. Conversely, ICS is a tool used by first and second responder agencies to deploy the right strategic and tactical response to handle immediate circumstances and bring them under control.
Following are some tips for understanding the differences. For most airports ICS is the primary tool that they will use. NIMS-based, large-scale support nearly always will be managed from a city or county EOC, though a few airports will have the capacity to oversee support to operations from their own EOC.
Compliance with NIMS standards is a requirement for disaster preparedness funding, including any monies sought to support training. It is difficult to argue against the logic of NIMS and ICS when considering the reality of what happens when a major incident or event occurs. Airports may need to draw upon all available resources including employees from airside and landside operations, maintenance, information technology ITadministrative, property management, and others.
If only a few airport management staff members know what ICS means and how it works, coordinating a response utilizing as many available resources as possible ends up being more challenging than it needs to be.
Add to that requests for aid outside the airport and a media onslaught to get information and fill the airwaves, and the situation quickly can become untenable.
