County hears about Magdalena well situation
jun 14, 2013

[Socorro] County fire marshal and emergency services coordinator Fred Hollis ...

...secretary of the state Environment Department [Ryan Flynn] made an emergency declaration [of life threatening conditions] ...

Hollis noted the process has been difficult since Magdalena’s emergency responders have not come down for training to become familiar with ICS, or the incident command system.

ICS, as defined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency website [FEMA], is a standardized, on-scene management structure that allows for several agencies to work together with a common organizational structure.
