National Incident Management System

While most emergency situations are handled locally, when there’s a major incident help may be needed from other jurisdictions, the state and the federal government.

The National Incident Management System (NIMS) was developed so responders from different jurisdictions and disciplines can work together better to respond to natural disasters and emergencies.

NIMS benefits include:
   • A unified approach to incident management
   • Standard command and management structures [Incident
     Command System – ICS]
   • Emphasis on preparedness, mutual aid and resource management

The National Response Framework [NRF]
   • Establishes a comprehensive all-hazards approach to
     enhance the ability of the United States to manage
     domestic incidents.
   • Forms the basis of how federal departments and agencies
     will work together and how the federal government will
     coordinate with state, local, and tribal governments and the
     private sector during incidents.
   • NIMS is mandated for use within the NRF
