“TIMELY AND THOROUGH… AN EXTREMELY VALUABLE TOOL.” —Cynthia Kellams, Journal of Homeland Security and Emergency Management When the NIMS ICS Guide® was introduced in 2006, it was the first pocket reference to give first responders fast access to information needed for effective incident command. Now updated with National Response Framework (NRF), this must-have pocket reference is used by more than 150,000 public safety and health professionals. Now available for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, this interactive application allows you to customize contact information for each incident for rapid on-scene communication, and provides detailed dynamic checklists that ensure that no detail is missed. The content is all-hazards, non-jurisdictional and discipline-specific, and includes responsibilities and rules for applying the Incident Command System (ICS). In addition to being an indispensable field tool, it is ideal for NIMS/ICS training and functional exercises, with dozens of detailed illustrations, charts and checklists. Designed for responders at the local, state or federal level or in private industry, this will quickly become your preferred NIMS training and field decision-support tool. Support your NIMS training with this comprehensive app and feel confident that your NIMS compliance requirements are met. TESTIMONIALS “In the process of retooling our campus Emergency Management Plan, this has been an invaluable resource.

  • 5+ Years Without an Update???!

    By USMC Tanker
    Seriously. Very disappointed that the developers haven't updated this app. No longer useable with the current iOS version. Unsatisfactory given the high cost of the app.
  • Update!

    By Fyrekev
    Drastically needs an update.
  • $15 for this dinosaur of an app?!

    By Cvlrymedic
    The app has great information but the developers need to get their heads out of the sand and give it an update. It frequently freezes to the point I have to uninstall and reinstall it. Also the app hasn't been updated to support the new iPhones with larger screens. I paid $15 for an app that is worthless every time I need it most. Update this crap please.
  • Like the other reviewers, wish it worked

    By Butchkgs
    Worked the first couple days then freezes and does nothing, and tight when I needed I might add! Great descriptions, from what I remember. Would definitely like a note pad and all the pertinent forms needed to at least work from. 14 duckets? Quite expensive for something that doesn't work. They need to open an IMC for their app and get their guys working on fixing it.
  • Keeps Freezing

    By gacano46
    I don't know what it is, but since I purchased this app it has not worked properly. No matter if I shut it off, or reinstall it, it still won't work. I hope they come up with a fix for this with print capabilities and form access.
  • Not worth the cost.

    By sawbones25
    I was hoping this had some useful tools for when on deployment. It's a basic reference guide about what people do. That's it. When I'm working, I don't need a description of my job, I need forms and checklists to DO the job. For the cost, I figured this would have that stuff. It doesn't. Waste of money for me. Update October 6, 2015: App doesn't work. Starts up but does not respond. Totally worthless now. iOS 9.0.2
  • Great when it worked.

    By Zammikiel
    Mine has stopped working. It is the perfect field guide to have when out doing work with my local CERT team.
  • Great App But Non Responsive

    By seanered
    I think this is a fantastic app. Has a lot of detailed information when it works. The problem that I have is that when I go to launch the app it doesn't respond. I have to delete it and re-install it. Would be great to have this fixed because I am looking for an alternative app. Hopefully this can be corrected.
  • Not worth $14

    By DayfdBart
    This app is definitely not worth $14. It has no glossary or acronym look up, no form information of any kind (ICS is very form heavy), no job aids that would help you in your section. It also does not reflect the new Intel section chief position or subdivisions. Save your $14 until this app is updated or the price drops down below $5.
  • Works Half of the time

    By St18
    Great app great concept only works half of the time. Needs updated.
