    While Firescope was basically the conception for ICS, many agencies had been using plain language long before even 1970.

    Firescope, then ICS, then NIMS merely made it "fashionable".

    I still stand by my comments about Cheney and the FCC, as well
    as the part about the feds MANDATING plain language.

    Just another reason why we need a USAR Team in Arkansas!

    Actually, as I understand it... Plain language is still MANDATED during certain types of multi-jurisdictional incidents. It's just that the feds lightened up on eliminating codes from every day use within a department.

    You are correct, and I guess I should have been more clear. The original thread was talking about day to day operations, and that is what I was refering to.

    Yes, NIMS requires its use during multi jurisdictional operations.
