    Default Fema Is-200

    Does anyone have the answers for the FEMA IS-200 titled "ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents?" I just can't seem to find where my mistakes are.

    I think that your biggest mistake was coming in here for the answers that can be found by reading the course material and doing a little research
    Just someone trying to help! (And by the way....Thanks for YOUR help!)

    Meh... he's doing the same thing everybody else does, just publicly!

    Honestly, if you read through and understand ICS 100, that's more NIMS than the basic, run of the mill firefighter will ever need to use.

    That being said, I have answers to 200, 700, and 800 if anybody needs them. And before anybody starts in, I did do them all myself.
    Not everyone is doing it!!!!!!!

    I didn't do it....you say that YOU didn't do it......so who are these "every-bodies" that are doing it?

    You do the Fire Service a "disservice" by giving up answers that firefighters need to get on their own. Why not give the answers to the fire academy questions. That won't hurt anyone.

    If you don't want to spend the time getting the training that is required, then don't be a firefighter.

    Well good job, glad you took the time to actually do it. But honestly, how mush of that junk do you remember? And what's the likelihood that you will EVER use it? This stuff is geared toward people who would be in command positions if an incident were to occur. Sure the common terminology and whatnot is useful, but like I said, that's all covered in ICS 100. 99.98% of the fire service will never use any NIMS beyond what is taught in 100. And of the people who do, I'm not one of them. I am in no sort of command position and it will be a long time before I ever will be, so this stuff means absolutely nothing to me. Just the government's way of making me jump through hoops to get grant money.

    And don't compare this giving answers to fire academy tests, it's not even similar. Giving answers to NIMS WON'T hurt anybody. Not knowing firefighting basics WILL.

    Besides as volunteers, a lot of people don't have time for this. Is not about being smart, dumb, lazy, motivated, or not committed. It's about priorities. Lives and families come before the volunteer fire department. Jobs come before the FD. Volunteering doesn't put food on the table! If you consider all the training required to be a volunteer firefighter these days, all this does is add more strain. 40 hrs. for Basic FF, SIDS, Bloodborne pathogens, HAZMAT, WMD, First Responder, plus ongoing training. Most people don't have the time to sit down and take additional 3-4 hour classes that mean NOTHING to them. It's becoming way too hard to VOLUNTEER your time to protect your community these days, and that's why a lot of place are hurting for help. I'm not saying everything is unecessary, because its not. However, NIMS 200, 300, 400, 700, and 800, never have and never will apply to Joe Firefighter at Mayberry Volunteer Fire Department.

    Any class like IS 200, print the test out, read it, then take the class. You should have no problem at all.
    Don't cheat, don't have someone give you the answers, just go through the class. It isn't that hard and your brain will not fill up.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    I've never had a problem with a group of firefighters training together (i.e. group testing with everyone taking a question and discussing it) but I would not outright ask for answers especially in a public forum such as this.

    The current NIMS fad has everyone taking a bunch of tests for the purpose of Uncle Sam being able to declare how much more efficiently we (and other emergency responders) will be able to operate in a time of crisis due to the Feds' "proactive thinking".

    I saw all of that to say this... with the federal government driving this, I doubt Uncle Sam would be too happy about the answers being OPENLY passed around for its tests. This is the kind of stuff that makes headlines on the 5 o'clock news and gets folks in alot of trouble.

    Default Food for thought

    I am a volunteer and former career FF and still find time to do what needs to be done around my life demands. It is all about being the best I can be and meeting the demands layed down no matter who lays them down nor what I think about them.
    In closing might want to see what is on FEMA/EMI web site about cheating.

    You should leave the fire service. Really, if you don't have the time to do it right, then leave. This is not a game. It's not a hobby.

    The sentiment you expressed in your post could set the volunteer fire service back decades.

    I've been a vollie for 20 years, and yes it takes up a lot of time. But if a community cannot do it safely, then they should consider their options.
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    Default ICS Test

    ICS 200 is probably the best of the courses. And just so you know test questions and answers are now being scrambled so you might not get the test everytime. I am seeing alot of departments going to the 6-8 hr classroom training since the online has proven to be very ineffective.

    I took the whole class and passed the test easily, while woking more than 40 hours a week, volunteering and actually starting to have a social life. It is doable, but I can see how it could be difficult to work into a busy schedule. Still, I managed to find the two spare hours needed to do the class.
