Preparedness Policy and Guidance

Support ALL levels of Incident Management Teams

Provide funding, oversight and guidance for all levels of incident management teams. Develop a national system of training and certification for Types I, II, and III teams. Smaller Type III incidents may cross state boundaries, but because certifications are set up by each state, other states don't have to honor them, complicating the response. It could also make the transition from Type III to Type II more efficient.

    The Type-3 AHIMT program has been useful, but it seems to be at the expense of more local capabilities.
