National Incident Management Organization (NIMO)

The National Incident Management Organization is composed of four Incident Management Teams. Each team consists of seven members, who are assigned full-time to Command and General Staff positions (Incident Commander, Safety Officer, Public Information Officer, Planning Section Chief, Operations Section Chief, Logistics Section Chief, Finance Section Chief).

The primary focus of the program is to support  new, innovative approaches to the management of large, complex wildland fires. The four teams provide year-round support to Fire and Aviation Management to achieve this through: building cpacity, mentoring; fuels implementation; fire and resource management support; National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) projects; improving the workplace environment; and leadership training and development.
