National Incident Management System (NIMS) Implementation Fact Sheet for Nonprofit Organizations

National Engagement Period

FEMA’s National Integration Center seeks public feedback for an update of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) Implementation Fact Sheet for Nonprofit Organizations. This National Engagement Period will conclude at 5 p.m. EDT on Friday July 12, 2019. National engagement provides an opportunity for interested parties to comment on the draft fact sheet, to ensure it is relevant for all implementing nonprofit partners.

NIMS is an integral component of the National Preparedness System and the Nation’s ability to achieve the National Preparedness Goal. The NIMS Implementation Fact Sheet for Nonprofit Organizations identifies the specific activities that are involved in NIMS implementation for state, local, tribal and territorial nonprofit organizations.

FEMA last revised the NIMS Implementation Fact Sheet for Non-Governmental Organizations in 2006 and is now updating and renaming the document to ensure it is consistent with the NIMS refresh, to incorporate stakeholder input, and to make it a more clear and useful tool for nonprofit organizations as they implement NIMS.

Nonprofit and private sector organizations greatly differ. Each sector is a valuable partner to FEMA and plays an important role in preparedness, response and recovery efforts. Based on the 2017 Hurricanes Season FEMA After-Action Report, the NIMS refresh and feedback from both nonprofits and the private sector, a recommendation to the public will be presented during the National Engagement period to create separate NIMS Implementation Fact Sheets – one for nonprofit organizations, and one for private sector organizations. The latter is being developed for release this year.
