Nuclear emergency response? A new FEMA NIMS-type position can help: your feedback is needed!

from IAEM

During radiological and nuclear emergencies, routine decisions and operations for state and local response agencies become increasingly complex. These actions require radiation experts to safeguard the public and responders. Through the creation of a new position called the Radiological Operations Support Specialist (ROSS), the Departments of Homeland Security (DHS) and Energy (DOE) want to train and certify radiation experts to integrate with the incident command system during a radiological response. These ROSS positions will directly support the incident commander, emergency managers, agency decision makers, and elected officials. The ROSS will be a technical specialist under the National Incident Management Systems (NIMS). FEMA needs your help to determine the appropriate skills, knowledge, and abilities as well as the training and tools necessary for the ROSS position to succeed. Please download additional materials and provide feedback. more
