NIMS Tabletop Software

For those of you that are interested in NIMS ICS training, NIJ has released a software program that allows local agencies to build tabletop exercises without the need for outside consultants.  It has been demonstrated at the IACP meeting in New Orleans.  While not perfect and basic in some ways it allows departments to set up tabletops with multiple players in different locations to manage different types of incidents and using your ESRI data make them geographically customized.  The software is free and NIJ will assist you if needed.

Go to www.incidentcommander.net to get more information.  The PM for the project is Gina Wheeler, 907-569-5672.
