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.

This link will lead you to the NRF Resource Center, where you can surf to find more information about public health. Follow the Annexes link to ESF #8, Public Health and Medical Services.
