“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.
“In the process of retooling our campus Emergency Management Plan, this has been an invaluable resource. It has also been of great benefit during ICS and unified command training and emergency management exercises. It’s a top notch product.” —Lieutenant Bret Collier, Professional Standards and Emergency Management, University of Houston Department of Public Safety
“A fantastic resource…indispensable to public safety operations.” —Director of the Office of Emergency Management, Arlington, Texas
“An excellent reference for anyone faced with the possibility of working within a NIMS environment.” —Ed Wilson, Past President, Western Fire Chiefs Association

Ratings and Reviews
This a a great app especially for anyone at the ICS 300 or ICS 400 level. The tools are great and the list of forms and responsibilities is very detailed and easy to read.
The only problem I have is that it is a "deep" app and some things are more difficult to find than others. (you have to dig a little.) However overall if you know the ICS structure it is a great resource.
Great App But Non Responsive
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.
$15 for this dinosaur of an app?!
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.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
