(NIMS) National Incident Management System
The National Incident Management System (NIMS) was originally issued in 2004, as required by Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD)- 5. The NIMS provides a consistent nationwide framework to enable partners across the Nation to work together to prevent, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of incidents, regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity. It consists of concepts, principles, organizational processes, and terminology to enable an effective and collaborative management of incidents.
Stakeholders across all levels of government are required to implement the NIMS in order to be eligible for preparedness funds issued by federal agencies. The National Integration Center has established Implementation Objectives that reflect NIMS concepts and principles and promote consistency in NIMS implementation across the Nation. The Michigan State Police, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division serves as a resource to provide additional guidance to assist state, local, and private agencies in implementing the NIMS and serves as the contact for certifying implementation with the federal government.
For questions regarding the NIMS, please contact the State NIMS Coordinator, Mr. Henrik Hollaender at 517-284-3970 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
