NIMS Compliance

NIMS COMPLIANCE GUIDE

Resourses to assist public health and healthcare partners meet the NIMS requirements

 

In accordance with Governor Richard Codey’s Executive Order 50, compliance with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) is a prerequisite to obtaining any federal preparedness assistance. The NIMS is intended to provide “a consistent, flexible, and adjustable national framework to enable first responders at all levels of government,  along with the private sector and non governmental organizations,  to work together effectively and efficiently to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters, regardless of cause, size or complexity, including acts of catastrophic terrorism.”

Essex Regional Health Commission has provided the NIMS Training Guideline from the Department of Homeland Security. This list provides the required trainings as well as what personnel should take them.
