2014 NIMS Position Specific Trainings
Based on demand, MARC is pleased to offer the National Incident Management System (NIMS) courses, which provide additional training to personnel responsible for managing incidents of greater complexity than those typically encountered during routine operations. Emergency responders can learn how to respond to the safety needs of an incident in the upcoming Safety Officer (SOFR) training.
"CAPSTONE 14" exercise After Action Report/Improvement Plan complete
In June 2014, jurisdictions across Missouri participated in a full-scale exercise called CAPSTONE 14. The exercise focused on response to a catastrophic earthquake in the New Madrid Seismic Zone. In the Kansas City metro, 23 emergency management agencies, 47 hospitals, 10 public health agencies, 17 public information officers, the American Red Cross, Kansas City Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster and the Medical Reserve Corps participated in various aspects of the exercise. The exercise included testing capabilities for operational coordination, mass care services, medical surge, operational communications and public information and warning. Several strengths and areas for improvement were identified and documented in an After Action Report/Improvement Plan (AAR/IP). The AAR/IP is for official use only and available upon request to MARC and the Metropolitan Emergency Managers Committee (MEMC).
