Incident Command System

The Incident Command System (ICS) is a management system used within the United States to organize emergency response and was designed to offer a scalable response to incidents of any magnitude.

As part of FEMA's National Response Plan (NRP), the system was expanded and has become the National Incident Management System (NIMS).
