CSFC Firefighters Complete Mandatory NIMS Training

On Tuesday evening, July 19th,  Cold Spring firefighters gathered in the Company meeting room to complete the ongoing process of the NIMS 100 and 700 level courses.  NIMS which stands for “National Incident Management System” is a federally mandated certification for all emergency services personnel, as well as elected officials.  Developed in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and implemented in 2004 by the Department of Homeland Security, NIMS provides a standardized, yet flexible baseline standard for all emergency response situations.
