Craig Fugate, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency. II. Background DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT The National Incident Management System (NIMS) provides a consistent nationwide template to enable Federal, State, Tribal, and local governments, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector to work together to prevent, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of incidents, regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is requesting public comments on the NIMS Public Works Resources: Typed Resource Definitions (FEMA 508– 7). This document supports the Resource Management Component of NIMS. Emergency management and incident response activities require carefully managed resources (personnel, teams, facilities, equipment, and/or supplies) to meet incident needs. Utilization of the standardized resource management concepts such as typing, inventorying, organizing, and tracking will facilitate the dispatch, deployment, and recovery of resources before, during, and after an incident. Resource typing is defined as categorizing, by capability, the resources requested, deployed, and used in incidents. Resource users at all levels use these standards to identify and inventory resources. Resource kinds may be divided into subcategories (e.g. Public Works) to define more precisely the capabilities needed to meet specific requirements. FEMA seeks comment on the proposed policy. Based on the comments received, FEMA may make appropriate revisions to the proposed policy. Although FEMA will consider any comments received in the drafting of the final policy, FEMA will not provide a response to comments document. When or if FEMA issues a final policy, FEMA will publish a notice of availability in the Federal Register and make the final policy available at http://www.regulations.gov and it will be posted to the NIMS Resource Center at http://www.fema.gov/nims. The final policy will not have the force or effect of law. Authority: 6 U.S.C. 312; Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD)—5.
