NIMS and National Preparedness

The National Incident Management System (NIMS) provides a systematic, proactive approach to guide departments and agencies at all levels of government, NGOs, and the private sector to work seamlessly to protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of incidents, regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity, in order to reduce the loss of life and property and harm to the environment. NIMS works hand in hand with the NRF. NIMS provides the template for the management of incidents, while the NRF provides the structure and mechanisms for national-level policy for incident management.

NIMS provides the template for the management of incidents, regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity. This template establishes the structure, concepts, principles, processes, and language for the effective employment of capabilities nationally, whether those capabilities reside with federal, state, tribal, or local jurisdictions or with the private sector or NGOs.

Planned topics include national-level plans, elements of national authority, national response framework (NRF), national incident management system (NIMS), national- and regional-level resource management, the role of FEMA/regional-to-state connections, and training requirements.

This SMARTbook is currently in development, projected for release in 2016.
