The following actions are the recommended steps for the cities in Chelan County:

  • Adopt NIMS, by resolution, as the official Incident Management System for your city.
  • Have your elected officials, city executives, and other staff complete the online NIMS Course (IS-700).  This should only take between 1-2 hours for each person to complete.  The online course is available at http://training.fema.gov/emiweb/IS/is700cm/index.html.
  • Update any city codes or plans that refer to the Incident Command System to reflect the change to NIMS.
  • Create a file to keep copies of the NIMS Certificates your employees receive.

Please contact Chelan County Emergency Management for additional information.
