NIMS ICS (National Incident Management System) Incident Command System: Introduction to the Incident Command System


The National Incident Management System (NIMS), which is under the Federal Emergency Management Agency, provides a consistent nationwide template to enable all government, private sector, and nongovernmental organizations, including all first responders, to work together effectively during domestic incidents. The intent of NIMS is to be applicable across a full spectrum of potential incidents and hazard scenarios, regardless of size or complexity and improve coordination and cooperation between public and private entities in a variety of domestic incident management activities. NIMS provides for interoperability and compatibility among all responders. All NIMS classes are offered sporadically and upon request.
