Listed below are some FEMA National Incident Management System (NIMS) online courses.
Why is NIMS important?
- A major incident may require help from other jurisdictions, the state, and federal government and individual volunteers.
- NIMS was developed so responders from different jurisdictions and disciplines can work together better to respond to natural disasters and emergencies, including acts of terrorism.
- NIMS benefits include a unified approach to incident management; standard command and management structures; and emphasis on preparedness, mutual aid and resource management.
