All Together Now: Integrating Risk and Crisis Communication in NIMS and ICS Workshop

All Together Now: Integrating Risk and Crisis Communication in NIMS and ICS Workshop

All Together Now: Integrating Risk and Crisis Communication in NIMS and ICS Workshop

The National Incident Management System (NIMS) guides all levels of government, nongovernmental organizations and the private sector to work together to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to and recover from incidents, and the Incident Command Structure (ICS) has long been established by the NIMS as the standardized incident organizational structure for the management of all incidents. While these structures are well-established and a best practice for the management of incidents, we must update and adapt the way in which responders integrate risk and crisis communication principles into these structures and other communication processes.  

This interactive, virtual workshop addresses the integration of risk and crisis communication principles into the NIMS and ICS. The workshop provides an overview of NIMS and ICS functions and how to integrate risk and crisis communication into NIMS, ICS, and other communication processes.
