16 Session 1216 NIMS Preparedness Basis HSPD-5: Established a single, comprehensive approach to incident management HSPD-8: Established the U.S. policy for “enhancing protection of the Nation’s critical infrastructure and key resources” and mandated a national plan to implement that policy in partnership with stakeholders HSPD-8: Directed DHS to lead the nation in the development of a National Preparedness System

17 Session 1217 NIMS and the NRF NRF is an all-hazards framework that builds upon NIMS and describes additional specific Federal roles and structures for incidents in which Federal resources are involved. NRF provides the structure and mechanisms for national- level policy and operational direction for incident management. NIMS and NRF are designed to improve the Nation’s incident management capabilities and overall efficiency. NIMS and the NRF are designed to ensure that local jurisdictions retain command, control, and authority over response activities for their jurisdictional areas.
