NIMS and ICS Components. When multiple agencies collaborate during times of crisis, it is critical for the success of the disaster response that communication follows the 4 phases of emergency management (mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery). In this assignment, you’ll analyze how components of NIMS (National Incident Management System) and ICS (Incident Command System) protocols help consistently facilitate these phases.
Write an 875- to 1,050-word paper on the importance of NIMS and ICS in interagency communication and collaboration as they relate to the 4 phases of emergency management. Address the following in your paper: Identify the components involved in the NIMS and ICS protocols and explain how they relate to each of the 4 phases of emergency management.
Discuss the components involved with effective interagency communication and collaboration in the NIMS and ICS protocols during each of the 4 phases of emergency management. Describe the impact that U.S. presidential disaster declarations have on the initiation of the NIMS and CIS protocols and, in turn, on the communication, collaboration, and interoperability within government agencies.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporate-d in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
