When the NIMS ICS Guide® was introduced in 2006, it was the first pocket reference to give first responders fast access to information needed for effective incident command. Now updated with National Response Framework (NRF), this must-have pocket reference is used by more than 150,000 public safety and health professionals.
Now available for Android this interactive application allows you to customize contact information for each incident for rapid on-scene communication, and provides detailed dynamic checklists that ensure that no detail is missed. The content is all-hazards, non-jurisdictional and discipline-specific, and includes responsibilities and rules for applying the Incident Command System (ICS).
In addition to being an indispensable field tool, it is ideal for NIMS/ICS training and functional exercises, with dozens of detailed illustrations, charts and checklists. Designed for responders at the local, state or federal level or in private industry, this will quickly become your preferred NIMS training and field decision-support tool.
Support your NIMS training with this comprehensive app and feel confident that your NIMS compliance requirements are met.

The SPE model calculates risk for specific hazards, such as launching or recovering small watercraft or clearing a hiking trail of fallen trees, by determining risk as a function of severity, probability, and exposure. Risk = Severity x Probability x Exposure. You can evaluate its potential impact your activity by the calculated risk score, the degree of risk determined, and the recommended guidance.
ORMA stands for Operational Risk Management Analysis. The ORMA model is a cyclical planning process, meaning that changes to the situation or categories, such as the operating Environment, requires re-evaluation. The purpose of planning with ORMA is to properly determine risk and to mitigate that risk in accordance with the mission.
GAR stands for Green, Amber, and Red. These colors correspond to numerical values of both individual categories of a risk rating and the overall risk. Each element is rated 1-10, with 10 representing the highest risk. Once all categories have been assigned a value, the overall score is calculated, and both a GAR color and recommendation is displayed.
