NATIONAL INCIDENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (NIMS)
The National Incident Management System (NIMS) guides all levels of government, nongovernmental organizations and the private sector to work together to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to and recover from incidents.
NIMS provides stakeholders across the whole community with the shared vocabulary, systems and processes to successfully deliver the capabilities described in the National Preparedness System. NIMS defines operational systems that guide how personnel work together during incidents.
Local, state, territorial, and tribal nation jurisdictions are required to adopt NIMS in order to receive federal Preparedness grants.
The National Incident Management System (NIMS) Training Program helps to mitigate risk by achieving greater preparedness. The training program facilitates training and qualification of emergency management personnel to NIMS concepts and principles.
The NIMS Training Program identifies a deliberate method to develop and maintain a complete NIMS core curriculum and, concurrently, to provide training guidance to stakeholders for developing their training plans.
