The National Incident Management System Model Procedure Guides Consortium:
Is an organization of fire service professionals whose goal was to merge the two most popular incident command systems used by the American fire service into a single common system. These two systems are the Fire Ground Command System, developed by the Phoenix, Arizona, Fire Department, and the Incident Command System, developed in California by the FIRESCOPE program. / 501c3 Non Profit Org.
The Consortium has successfully merged the Incident Command System’s organizational design and structure with the tactical and procedural components of Fire Ground Command that are NIMS compliant via a consensus review process. They have incorporated these elements in several documents titled “Model Procedures Guides”.
Current IMS guides include Book 1, second printing 2010 and Book 2, 2008 . Both books contain combine multi-disciplinary organizations/agency functions and tactical operations to assist users in developing all hazard, all agency IMS SOG’s and SOP’s.
