Emergency Management: National Incident Management
The IDA is helping communities revitalize their downtown areas as they face transportation, suburbanization and technology challenges. The site includes lists of members, products and services.
FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute (EMI), in Emmitsburg, Maryland, offers training on topics related to floodplain management, mitigation, and construction, including the basic CRS course (E278). These are oriented to local building, zoning, planning, and engineering officials. Tuition is free for state and local government officials, travel stipends are available, and on-campus lodging is free. Free transportation is provided from the airport to the campus and back to the airport. The only out-of-pocket expense is a meal ticket—all-you-can-eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

“Although the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) developed NIMS compliance requirements for state, local, and tribal governments, they have not developed requirements for individual sectors, such as the water sector. In the absence of specific requirements, this document provides recommended water sector NIMS implementation objectives that integrate NIMS principles into utility operations and planning.” This handout was developed by the EPA.
