National Incident Management System (NIMS)
provides a systematic, proactive approach to guide departments and agencies at all levels of government, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector to work seamlessly to prevent, 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
National Response Framework (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.
To receive credit for the NIMS Level of training, you must complete each course in that level. After submitting a copy of your certificate of completion to Joey Jamison, you will receive credit.
