Release of the Refreshed NIMS Doctrine

FEMA released the refreshed National Incident Management System (NIMS) doctrine on October 17, 2017. NIMS provides a common, nationwide approach to enable the whole community to work together to manage all threats and hazards. NIMS applies to all incidents, regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity.

In April and May 2016, FEMA held a 30-day National Engagement Period, in which stakeholders submitted nearly 3,000 comments and provided feedback on the draft NIMS update, ensuring that it reflects the collective expertise and experience of the whole community.

FEMA will host a series of 60-minute webinars with stakeholders to discuss the updates in the refreshed NIMS and answer questions related to NIMS. All webinars are open to the whole community. For webinar dates, times, and registration information, please go here: https://www.fema.gov/latest-news-updates.

“Large Event Crisis Planning – A Private Sector Perspective”

Tuesday, July 18, 2017, 2:00-3:30 p.m. EDT
IAEM Think Tank: "Large Event Crisis Planning – A Private Sector Perspective"

register online
Description: Crisis planning for large events is now on the mind of many emergency managers due to the recent awful attacks overseas. This concern is especially high for private sector companies that host thousands of people at events or on their sites. Our upcoming IAEM Think Tank will provide a behind-the-scenes look at large event crisis planning from a private sector perspective and explain how to engage with government responders to develop a seamless response plan.
