National Incident Management System Policy 620.00
Johnson County Community College
Series: 600 Safety and Security
Section: Campus Community Safety, Wellness and Continuity

Applicability: This Policy applies to the Johnson County Community College (“JCCC” or the “College”) campus community, including all students, personnel, and visitors.

Purpose: The purpose of this Policy is to set out the method and practices the College will follow for incident management and disaster recovery.


In support of its emergency management and mission continuity endeavors, the College will use the National Incident Management System (NIMS) as its standard, coordinated and systematic method for incident management along with Disaster Recovery Institute International professional practices.

The Office of Emergency Management will ensure the NIMS approach is incorporated into the College’s emergency management practices to help the College prepare for, respond to, recover from, and reduce the effects of incidents and potential incidents, whether they are intentional, accidental, or natural.

College employees who have functional or oversight responsibilities associated with incident management are expected to complete NIMS training requirements as developed under the National Response Framework for NIMS and participate in emergency management and mission continuity exercises intended to improve overall College preparedness.
