(March 2024) Multi-part request for Alexander County, NC Government: Proof of NIMS required ICS training for Sheriff’s Department, Fire Department, and EMS. From 10/10/23 – 03/07/24

Good afternoon Sylvia, Jamie, (or Custodian(s) of these records),

Please reply promptly to the following multi-part public records request, which I’m making in accordance with NC Public Records Law. https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

** I’m simply requesting an electronic copy of an electronic record, if one exists. I’m NOT asking for the opportunity to come in person to "inspect", nor to obtain a printed copy of, this electronic record. I’m requesting explicitly that any responsive info be provided to me via the electronic medium / electronic format (in which the copy of this record already exists). If you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of this request, please specifically cite where a reason for denial is justified under NC Public Records Law. **

This request is related to National Incident Management System [NIMS] required Incident Command System [ICS] training.

Please provide proof (as required for NIMS) of Federal Emergency Management Agency [FEMA] compliance for ALL Alexander County, NC Sheriff Department employees, in all Divisions and Departments under the purview of the Sheriff. I believe that ICS levels 100, 200, 300, 400, 700, and 800 training requirements vary based on leadership level, so the appropriate rank structure should provide the corresponding certification. Additionally – please provide the same training for the Fire Department (if required in their contract), as well as EMS personnel under the Alexander County purview.

All the responsive records requested should include the specific time period of October 10, 2023 through March 07, 2024.

If any / all of this info is already publicly available online, please provide a link to where it can be accessed.

Please note that by submitting this request, I’m NOT agreeing to pay any potential fees or associated costs related to my request. If it isn’t possible to process the request without incurring fees, then please let me know the itemized potential cost and clear explanations of those charges upfront, and DO NOT proceed until I respond.

By Law I’m not required to provide a name or address to associate with a public records request, but in order to move things along I’d like to clarify that this request is being made by:

PO Box 17391
Asheville, NC 28816

The request has been sent solely by me and my email address [email protected] . If anyone other than that email address contacts you to pursue a similar request, it did not come from me.

    Hi Sylvia,

     

    Thank you for asking.

     

    Please consider the “Alexander County Fire Department” to refer to “The Alexander County Fire Marshal’s Office” AND “the eight county volunteer fire departments”.
