    NIMS ICS really has nothing to do with a MVA, and who is in charge of the operations. It may be the LEO who is in charge depending on what has happened!!!

        If you have taken the correct dose from the NIMS kool-aide, then NIMS ICS has everything to do with who and how IC runs at a MVA.

        -NIMS ICS should be established at every call, from a stubbed toe to a "towering inferno". The first arriving establishes IC, if the call remains small he also assumes the role of Operations. NIMS ICS can be expanded to fit the needs of the call... blah, blah, blah.

        -NIMS, since it covers all responders from local PD and FD to the National Guard, also states who is in charge of the scene; based on the type of call and experience levels of responders... blah, blah.

        Of course this is all academic, and relies heavily on drinking from the NIMS Kool-Aide. But don't fill the young Padawans head with NIMS doesn't matter. He could still grow up an run FEMA (if he has such qualifications as Commissioner of the Arabian Horses Association, yes dig on Michael Brown)

          You play their game in texas and we will do ours in Virignia. I was doing this job when everyone was doing the Fire Ground Commander thing long ago.

          We had command on every incident. We don't go hog wild with it. Our people know their jobs and we do it everyday. Thet RS guys isn't a fireman but one day wants to try to be one. He makes comments he n=knows nothing about and what others have said and he takes it as the truth.

              The folks worried about who can shut down roads, and who has a bigger pecker than the other guy, all need to chill. That goes for PD and FD alike. Having done both jobs, I can tell you that whether I liked it or not, if the FD parked the engine across a roadway, there wasnt alot I could do as a LEO. With that said, who cares? It means I didnt have to stand there and flap my arms at passing cars.

              On the other side, now that I'm a FF, can I **** on a cops boots and play "I'm in charge, neener neener neener?" Sure. But next time all the whackers are speeding around town when a tone dumps, should we expect the normally friendly cop (whos boots we ****ed on) to ignore FF's erratic driving heading to the station? Or, next time FF John Doe is on his way home from the local watering hole, should he pray for some professional courtesy if he gets stopped? The fact is, we are all supposed to be on the same team. Everyone play nice and there will be fewer problems, and things flow nicely.
