Background-History
  • National Incident Management System (NIMS)
    released requiring of use plain language during
    mutual aid events
  • November 2005 Governor Warner signs Executive
    Order 102 to mandate localities and state
    agencies to follow NIMS, DHS requirements, and
    the National Response Plan.
  • February 2006 NIMS Integration Center requires
    use of plain English for multi-agency,
    multi-jurisdiction and multi-discipline events.
  • October 2006 Governor Kaine issues press
    release announcing Common Language Protocols and
    encourages use statewide.

4
FY 2006 Activities
  • SIEC chartered an Initiative Action Team (IAT) to
    address Initiative 3 of the FY 2006 Strategic
    Plan
  • As defined by NIMS, identify and adopt common
    language protocols in the Commonwealth for day to
    day operations and major emergency situations.

5
Why Day to Day Mutual Aid
  • Commitment to eliminate the NIMS loophole.
  • Responders react with how they are trained.
  • Successful if we practice common language day to
    day.
  • BUT, there are a few situations where coded
    language may be necessary for responder safety.

6
Methodologies
  • Two questionnaires sent to Virginias public
    safety agencies.
  • Facilitated face-to-face meetings to determine
    recommendations.
  • On-going discussion via conference calls to
    continue to define the terms and recommendations.
  • Endorsements from Professional Organizations.
  • Sought Governor Approval and Recommendation

7
Coded Language Needs
  • Responder in Immediate Danger
  • Responder Needs Assistance/Backup
  • Responder is Taking or Recommends Taking Subject
    Into Custody
  • Responder/Dispatcher Needs to Convey Sensitive or
    Confidential Information

The 4 Codes
  • Removed for confidentiality
