NATIONAL INCIDENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (NIMS)
Command and Management: Incident Commander (IC) and

According to NIMS, the Incident Command System is
responsible for the overall management of a system.
The five management functions of the Incident Command System
of an incident are:
Incident
Command – Sets the incident objectives, strategies, and priorities and has
overall responsibility for the incident.
Operations
– Conducts operations to reach the incident objectives.
Planning
– Supports the incident action planning process by tracking resources, and
collecting/analyzing information.
Logistics
– Provides resources and needed services to support the achievement of the
incident objectives.
Finance
& Administration Monitors costs related to the incident (NIMS).

Case Assignment
NRF
Rank
order (in order of priority) the 14 core capabilities of the NRF. From
your first top three choices only, explain why you rank ordered them as
such. Be specific.
Explain
how the United States conducts an all-hazards response in the five
preparedness mission areas of prevention, protection, mitigation,
response, and disaster recovery.
NIMS
When
would a Deputy Incident Commander (Deputy IC) be necessary? Give examples.
In The
missing piece of NIMS: Teaching incident commanders how to function in the
edge of Chaos, the author notes that first responders have to
deal with a disaster situation already unfolding, and not “all the pieces
fit together nicely.” The author writes about the Five Tenets of Working
in Chaos. Please paraphrase each one using your own words.
DHS Law and Policy
Go to
the website Law and Policy, choose one law or policy and
briefly comment on it. Be specific.
