To learn about the types of responder resources that are requested and utilized in disasters, study the FEMA Resource Typing Library (RTLT).
Each Resource type has specific training requirements. Studying the RTLT will help you determine the best way for you to train as an Animal Disaster Responder.
The Resource Typing Library Tool (RTLT) is an online catalogue of national NIMS resource typing definitions, job titles/position qualifications and Position Task Books (PTBs).
Resource Typing Definitions are provided for equipment, teams, and units. They are used to categorize, by capability, the resources requested, deployed, and used in incidents. Measurable standards identifying resource capabilities and performance levels serve as the basis for this categorization.
Job Titles and Position Qualifications are used in the inventorying, credentialing, and qualifying of personnel. Credentialing is essential in validating the identity and attributes (e.g., affiliations, skills, or privileges) of emergency personnel.
