The purpose of this document is to describe the Concept of Operations (CONOPS) for using the Next-Generation Incident Command System (NICS) at echelons involved in emergency management. Ultimately the WICS vision extends this use to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations for all types of hazards and events across the full range of preparedness, planning, response, and recovery.
It is the intent of this document to provide an executive/administrative view for managers, and a technical/operational view for operators, so that both can assess the value and utility of NICS to the emergency management, first responder community.
