National Incident Management System: Principles And Practice


Completely updated to reflect the changes in the December 2008 release of the National Incident Management System.

Developed and implemented by the United States Department of Homeland Security, the National Incident Management System (NIMS) outlines a comprehensive national approach to emergency management. It enables federal, state, and local government entities along with private sector organizations to respond to emergency incidents together in order reduce the loss of life and property and environmental harm.
