From "Nerp" to "Nerf": Keep up on your DHS lingo
Emergency Management Alert, January 8, 2008
When the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) renamed the National Response Plan the National Response Framework, we found that we kept stumbling over other words, phrases and definitions that had changed. For example, Emergency Response Teams (ERT) and Federal Incident Response Support Teams (FIRST) are now IMAT, or Incident Management Assist Teams. Also altered was the Incident of National Significance, which DHS says has been eliminated while the agency searches for a more agile phrase.
