State of New York National Incident Management System (NIMS): 2009 Implementation Strategy [open pdf - 117KB]
"NIMS [National Incident Management System] Provides a Systematic, Proactive Approach to Guiding Departments and Agencies at All Levels of Government, the Private Sector, and Nongovernmental Organizations to Work Seamlessly to Prepare for, Prevent, 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, 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. This Consistency Provides the Foundation for Implementation of the NIMS for All Incidents, Ranging from Daily Occurrences to Incidents Requiring a Coordinated Federal Response."
