Under Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5, the President ordered the Director of Homeland Security to update the National Response Plan to an all-discipline, all-hazards approach to domestic incident management. A requirement of HSPD-5 is the development of a National Incident Management System (NIMS). NIMS was designed to standardize incident response management for all levels of government. It uses common terminology and standardized practices, maximizing interoperability between and across levels of authority.
