Chapter 4: National Incident Management System. This chapter applies strictly to National Incident Management Systems (NIMS) and how to apply a “chain of command” for any given incident; there is some crossover between this chapter and Chapter 5, which specifically involves Incident Command Systems (ICS) (ICS is a subset of NIMS), and Chapter 6, which outlines scenarios and instructions on emergency preparedness and readiness.
