Scope of NIMS
  • A national approach to managing incidents,
    regardless of cause, size or complexity
  • Based on best practices
  • Applies to all levels of government
  • Involves support from
  • Private sector
  • Non-governmental organizations
  • Tribal governments

4
Legal Basis
  • NIMS
  • Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5
    (HSPD-5)
  • ? Management of Domestic Incidents

Benefits
  • Improves national incident coordination and
    cooperation between public private entities
  • Provides guidance certification standards for
    all resources used in incident management
  • Provides for compatibility and interoperability
    among all involved organizations
  • Standardized organizational structure

6
National Response Framework (NRF)
  • Guide to how US conducts response to incidents
  • Provides structure and mechanisms to ensure
    effective Federal support
  • Builds on NIMS to align key roles and
    responsibilities
  • Basic premise of NIMS and NRF is incidents are
    managed at local level (Just like SEMS)

7
Elected and Appointed Officials Need to
  • Understand and commit to NIMS
  • Support training on NIMS
  • Understand emergency management, COOP/COG,
    response capabilities
  • Encourage preparedness
  • Support mitigation
  • Maintain awareness

8
NIMS Components
  • Command and Management
  • Preparedness
  • Resource Management
  • Communications and Information Management
  • Supporting Technologies
  • Ongoing Management and Maintenance
  • Lets see what each component includes

9
Use of ICS
  • Like SEMS NIMS uses ICS
  • The Incident Commander commands the incidents
    using all of the same ICS guidelines
  • NIMS uses Unified Command and Area Command
  • Staff organization used Command and General Staff
    positions
  • Plans for demobilization begin as soon as
    possible to facilitate accountability
  • Incident Action Plans are utilized

10
Public Information System
  • Joint Information System (JIS)
  • The framework for organizing, integrating and
    coordinating the delivery of public information
  • Joint Information Center (JIC)
  • Where the coordination of information and
    resources to support incident management can take
    place

11
Preparedness
  • Actions required to establish and maintain
    incident response capability
  • Includes efforts to coordinate between public and
    private organizations
  • Planning
  • Training and Exercises
  • Personnel Qualification and
  • Certification
  • Equipment Certification

12
Planning
  • Plans describe how resources will be used. Plans
    outline how to
  • Set priorities
  • Establish relationships and coordinate efforts
    between organizations
  • Ensure support for all incident management
    activities

13
Training
  • Allows practitioners to
  • Use concepts and principles
  • Become more comfortable using NIMS ICS

14
Exercises
  • Can improve performance and identify need for
    corrective action
  • Multidisciplinary/multijurisdictional incidents
  • Interact with private, nongovernmental
    organizations
  • Cover aspects of preparedness plans
  • Contain mechanism for incorporating corrective
    action and lessons learned

15
Credentialing
  • Ensure consistent
  • Training
  • Licensure
  • Certification standards
  • Competency or proficiency

16
Credentialing
  • Involves evaluation and documentation of
  • Certification, license or degree
  • Training and experience
  • Competence and proficiency

17
Resource Management
  • Advance Planning
  • Resource Identification and Ordering
  • Categorizing Resources
  • Use of Agreements
  • Effective Management of Resources
  • Management Information Systems
  • Ordering, Mobilization, Dispatching and
    Demobilization Protocols

18
Resource Management (cont.)
  • Identifying and Typing Resources
  • Certifying and Credentialing Personnel
  • Identifying Resource Requirements and
    Inventorying Resources
  • Ordering and Acquiring Resources

Resource Management
20
Communications and Information Management
  • Need for a common operating picture that is
    accessible across jurisdictions and agencies
  • Common communications and data standards are
    essential
  • Use of common terminology is encouraged

21
Mutual Aid
  • Agreements which provide services, resources, and
    facilities, when jurisdictional resources are
    inadequate
  • Allow jurisdictions to obtain assistance and
    resources quickly
  • Without agreements, costs might need to be
    negotiated

22
Mitigation Preparedness
  • Reduce loss by avoiding/lessening impact of
    disaster
  • Find the best safeguard solutions
  • Impedes cycle of disaster damage

23
In Summary
  • How might this be helpful to CERT Teams?
