I will also pass on your request that if they find outdated or incorrect information, they should forward the corrections/updates to you.

I am the NIMS Implementation Coordinator for the State of Washington and was provided a copy of your email addressed to Jaye Compton concerning what appears to be NIMS Implementation related information for local jurisdictions. As the state coordinator, I am concerned that the process I have developed could be compromised or at least cause confusion concerning correct contacts and reporting requirements. In particular, I am concerned about the link provided under the heading local and state officials have authorized changes in the NIMS structure.

I can assure you that their have been no authorized changes, at least at the state level and none at the local level that I am aware of, regarding NIMS structure, so I am puzzled at the purpose of your web site and what it is that you are actually attempting accomplish.

Can you please provide me with a description of what it is your office does, who you provide that service for, and how those functions relate to the implementation and certification process impacting any of the volunteer, public or private organizations in Washington State?

Thank you for checking with us on linking to the Washington State Patrol from your site at http://nims2006.bravehost.com

There are several error that we wanted to bring to your attention. Samuel Pierre is no longer the State Fire Marshal. Although we currently have and Acting State Fire Marshall, it might be a better to just link to the “Office of the State Fire Marshal title rather than a name. Also there is a link below the Fire Marshal called "NW Fire Link" that should be relocated since it is not related to the State Patrol or the Office of the State Fire Marshal and may be mistaken as part of our agency. In addition, the Washington State Patrol logo you have on your Web page is outdated.

Dear Chris,

Thank you very much for sending us the information about your work for the State of Washington. This preparedness tool is a valuable planning activity and an important resource for response and recovery activities. The Web-based contact list is useful for resource management and easy access to potential contacts statewide. Thanks very much for letting us know about it.

Subject: RE: NIMS Related Research Project

It ties to NIMS is the following ways:

Preparedness: Any emergency management related preparedness activity is tied directly to NIMS. This preparedness tool (listing of key contact personnel by state and county) is a valuable planning activity and an important resource for response and recovery activities.

Communications and Information Management: The web-based contact list is an extremely valuable response and recovery tool especially for resource management during and after an incident. Plus, the tool will be made available on a CD for use if the internet is down during an incident. An emergency manager in a county could pull out the CD or the printed version of the CD and use the information.

Resource Management: See above, the tool can be used by logistics personnel in a county emergency operations center for potential contacts of resources statewide.

As for interoperability … the definition of interoperability in its basic form is the ability of a system to use parts or equipment of another system … while we may be stretching things a bit with this tool under the basic definition of interoperability … the key contact list from all counties in the state has various uses in all phases of emergency management + it can be used in its CD form or printed form during an actual event. The data from this tool/system can be used in various other systems (resource management/emergency operations plans/etc.)

Hopefully this will help. Al.

Hi all

There is a new web site that will be a huge resource for emergency management (EM) and anyone interested in EM for WA, http://www.geocities.com/certvolunteer. It is a listing of assets by county and is well done. Depending on the county, there is a wealth of ARES/RACES info but it may or may not be what is desired.

Please have your DEC/EC/ROs review the info for their jurisdiction and submit additions/subtractions/corrections to Chris Walters at chrissaidthanks2002@yahoo.com. Chris' job is big enough without us making it any more complicated so please ensure the info for each county is consolidated and there is a single point of contact feeding that info to him. Just like any other piece of reference material, it's only as good as we make it, GIGO. Thanks.

Chris -

We don't mind you linking to our homepage. I visited your website. I would like to suggest a couple of changes in the spirit of accuracy and clarity:

First, the name of the agency I work for is the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (WUTC). Your site references us as the Washington Utilities Commission and the Washington Utilities and Trade Commission.

Second, under the listing of Washington State Agencies, where the WUTC appears, you have listed several links - the second is to "the Northwest Power Pool and Utilities" and the third is to "Railroads in Washington State." - The former is the website of an organization that is entirely separate from the Commission - in fact most of its members are not regulated by the WUTC. The latter link takes you to a page on the Washington State Department of Transportation's website. The way these links appear suggest some connection between the WUTC and these other organizations.

Third, the link to titled "Natural gas providers" contains a number of inaccuracies about how the companies are categorized. I suggest you link to our pipeline page and the listing of operators there. We maintain this list and update it regularly.

Finall, you might want to add the names and phone number of additional Commission employees - managers for energy, pipeline safety, rail safety, telecommunications, etc. You can find names, titles, telephone numbers, etc under contacts at the WUTC website.

Good luck with your website.
