    The report also refers to many instances of not following proper protocols dictated by the Incident Command System. To understand this report properly, people should follow the references for NIMS, at least, and read them to get an appreciation for the findings and recommendations in the report.

    Does anyone know where I can ask questions about the report after the 3:30pm meeting? 3 and a half hours is too short for me to read the entire report and I cannot go to the meeting.

    Could someone who goes to the meeting bring up this issue? Thank you.
