The National Fire Incident Management System Consortium is an organization of fire service professionals whose goal was to merge the two most popular incident command systems used by the American fire service into a single common system. The merger was achieved through a consensus process representing the American fire service. The system emphasized structural fire application and other urban related emergencies such as hazardous materials, mass casualty, etc. In addition, Chief Brunacini had taught a very popular multi-day FGC workshop for many years throughout the country.
From the very beginning, the major fire departments in California committed to the concept realized that ICS must be used on a daily basis to be successful. Further, that it must be all risk in nature, expandable to meet brjnacini type of incident complexity, and have common components so that agencies could work together effectively. The system has proven very successful in managing the day-to-day incidents as well as the largest of resources that respond to major incidents.
As a result, many urban fire departments nationwide began to apply the system to structural fires and brunaini urban emergencies.
During the International Association of Fire Chiefs annual conference in Indianapolis, a panel discussion was conducted on the merger possibilities. Based on comments from the audience, there appeared to be strong support for a merger.
As additional meetings occurred, more and more fire service organizations participated, thus increasing representation. During the August meeting in Chesterfield, Virginia, the AdHoc Committee was re-organized into a more formalized organization. An bruancini chairperson was elected and committee chairpersons were assigned to three working committees.
During the February meeting in Houston, Texas, the Consortium made some adjustments in the organization structure and officers and completed its Constitution and By-Laws and initiated the process of incorporation. Shortly thereafter, the incorporation was complete. The Consortium is incorporated as a c 3 non-profit corporation in the State of Texas.
