National Incident Management System-NIMS
Welcome to NIMS for Oregon

Each day communities respond to numerous emergencies. Most often, these incidents are managed effectively at the local level.
 
However, there are some incidents that may require a collaborative approach that includes personnel from:
 
• Multiple jurisdictions,
• A combination of specialties or disciplines,
• Several levels of government,
• Nongovernmental organizations, and
• The private sector.
 
The National Incident Management System, or NIMS, provides the foundation needed to ensure that we can work together when our communities and the Nation need us the most.
 
NIMS integrates best practices into a comprehensive, standardized framework that is flexible enough to be applicable across the full spectrum of potential incidents, regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity.
 
Using NIMS allows us to work together to prepare for, prevent, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of incidents. 
 
NIMS provides a consistent framework for incident management at all jurisdictional levels, regardless of the cause, size, or complexity of the incident.  Building on the Incident Command System (ICS), NIMS provides the Nation’s first responders and authorities with the same foundation for incident management for terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and all other emergencies.  NIMS requires that ICS be institutionalized and used to manage all domestic incidents.
 
All Oregon jurisdictions receiving preparedness funds or receiving direct benefit from these funds must be NIMS compliant. This is a Federal requirement that the State cannot waive or defer.
