Final 2007 NIMS IMPLEMENTATION REPORT
The 2007 implementation report to the state was submitted by the DEM on 11 September. This year each first response organization or jurisdiction is reporting separately in response to changes in the reporting procedures. Island County DEM therefore reported for the county government offices.
FINAL 2006 NIMS IMPLEMENTATION REPORT
The report indicated that Island County first responder organizations had made significant progress toward completing NIMS implementation and the 2006 implementation tasks. While progress was made, more work is needed to finish implementation.
