National Incident Management System (NIMS)

While most emergency situations are handled successfully at the local level, larger incidents may require added coordination and response assistance from other jurisdictions, or state or federal agencies.
To effectively manage these events, the National Incident Management System was developed so that responders from different agencies, jurisdictions and disciplines can organize and work together quickly in a standardized command and operations structure.
NIMS benefits include a unified approach to incident management; standardized structure and naming conventions and an emphasis on preparedness, mutual aid and resource management. For more information on NIMS and training please visit the appropriate link below.
