FEMA is seeking public feedback on NQS Job Titles/Position Qualifications and Position Task Books for three NQS CERT positions.
This national engagement period provides an opportunity for interested parties to comment on the draft documents, to ensure that they are relevant for all implementing partners. This engagement period will end at 5:00 PM Eastern Time on Thursday, November 26, 2020.
Today’s release includes three positions for CERT, including a section chief, team leader and volunteer.
Resource typing is a key component of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and enables organizations from across the country to work together during incidents of all types and sizes. Implementing NIMS resource management principles across the nation is a fundamental part of building our national preparedness. NIMS Job Titles/Position Qualifications define minimum qualifications and capabilities for personnel and their equipment within their assigned teams to manage all threats and hazards.
These resource typing documents will facilitate the sharing of deployable CERT positions at all jurisdictional levels.
