Redefining NIMS for Higher Education

I suggest you...redefine the NIMS requirements for higher education. The current NIMS training is a field level focus on how ICS operates. Many institutions, especially those that do not have their own public safety, need training on ICS that focuses on the relationship between an institution's emergency operations center and the field responders. Promote NIMS training that targets the ICS/EOC interface and establishing an EOC structure for the institution. This would have more relevancy for HEIs.
