Paul and I have been talking a lot about this lately, and we realize that we’ve come to the point that we need more than the Internet to bridge a gap in our knowledge – we need YOU, fellow subject matter experts in emergency management, public information, crisis communications and/or disaster incident response to give us the “boots on the ground” perspective.
We’re working on a few projects in which we have a need to know how non-U.S. governmental organizations and incident response systems and doctrine correspond with those here in the states. Well, it goes beyond a “need to know” – we also have a desire to understand.
Here’s what we’re looking for specifically, and all help is much appreciated — your country’s version of (summaries/examples of each are linked):
- National Response Framework
- National Contingency Plan
- Area Contingency Plans
- Incident Command System
- National Response Team Joint Information Model
- Pocket Incident Management Handbooks/Field Operations Guides
You can drop document titles and links in the comments section below, or send them via email to TheCrisisCommunicator(at)gmail(dot)com
Virtual high fives (or your cultural equivalent) to all that help!
