On February 28, 2003, the President issued Homeland Security Presidential Directive–5 (HSPD–5), Management of Domestic Incidents, which directed the Secretary of Homeland Security to develop and administer a National Incident Management System (NIMS). This system provides a consistent nationwide template to enable Federal, State, tribal, and local governments, the private sector, and nongovernmental organizations to work together 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 the harm to the environment. This consistency provides the foundation for utilization of NIMS for all incidents, ranging from daily occurrences to incidents requiring a coordinated Federal response. NIMS represents a core set of doctrines, concepts, principles, terminology, and organizational processes that enables effective, efficient, and collaborative incident management. Building on the foundation provided by existing emergency management and incident response systems used by jurisdictions, organizations, and functional disciplines at all levels, the NIMS document integrates best practices into a comprehensive framework for use by emergency management/response personnel in an all-hazards context nationwide. These best practices lay the groundwork for the components of NIMS and provide the mechanisms for the further development and refinement of supporting national standards, guidelines, protocols, systems, and technologies. NIMS fosters the development of specialized technologies that facilitate emergency management and incident response activities and allows for the adoption of new approaches that will enable continuous refinement of NIMS over time. The changes reflected in the revised document are not substantively dramatic, and do not alter the basic NIMS doctrine published in the 2004 version. The Department is providing the current draft of the NIMS for public comment; this draft document does not necessarily reflect the final policy of the Administration. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority: Homeland Security Act of 2002, as amended, 6 U.S.C. 101 et seq., Homeland Security Presidential Directive–5, Management of Domestic Incidents.
