The credentialing program is designed to follow the NIMS directive to identify first responders and verify their training certifications. The goal of the program is to credential all first responders in Somerset County, whether they serve on a county agency or a municipal agency. Personnel from the disciplines of firefighting, law enforcement, emergency medical service, emergency management and search and rescue can be credentialed. Disciplines of public health, public works, hazmat, incident command, and others will be included in the program soon. The program will be managed by Somerset County through the municipal offices of emergency management.
First responders who are issued credentials must bear in mind that such credentials are NOT authority to self-deploy to any emergency scene. The credentials are to be used when your agency is officially requested to respond to an emergency scene.
