Resource management is the cornerstone to preparing for and responding to incidents requiring mutual aid among agencies and jurisdictions. Currently, the adoption and use of standardized resource management policies, practices, and technology varies greatly at the local level nationwide. In order to unify efforts and improve resource management for daily operations and larger-scale incidents, we need to first understand how agencies are managing their resources today.
NAPSG Foundation is responding to this need by launching a study to form a baseline understanding on the extent of implementation of resource typing, inventorying, and management across the nation. Findings from this effort will help inform future resource management guidance that is part of NIMS and various resource management and mutual aid systems commonly in use today.
