National Incident Management System (NIMS) Requirements

It is recommend that all members take and pass the following courses to meet the NIMS requirements. Most all of the Emergency Communications Agencies (such as ACS, RACES, ARES and even the Red Cross) require anyone who is participating in any emergency situation to have taken and passed these courses. The courses and tests are available on the Internet at the addresses shown:

You will need to register so that the system can keep track of you and issue your completion certificates. The certificate will be issued on line, so you will need to print it out or save it to your local machine.

You don't need to pass these courses to be a member of Mercury Northwest. These links are provided as a resource and to help MNW members be better qualified to serve in their Wards, Stakes, and Communities.
