Subject: Re: [emergency] Groups - ICS-201-draft0.2.xsd uploaded
Like you, Allen, I'm not sure of the technical implications yet, but I do like the sound of what you're suggesting. There's still a fair-sized gap between the general principles expressed in NIMS and the fairly mature, but not entirely uniform, details of ICS implementation in the fire service and other disciplines... so the approach you propose might have the additional benefit of enabling folks to leverage existing practices without putting the TC in the middle of subject-matter and policy issues. I do get the sense that a lot of emergency managers are hungry for some sense of how the NIMS principles are to be applied in practice, and that DHS is very interested in letting industry provide standards-based solutions. - Art At 2:09 PM -0500 4/1/04, R.
