Incident Management System (IMS)
Structure, Implementation and Training
GEM Canada will assist you to customize, develop, implement an Incident Management System (IMS) framework for your organization providing training and education for senior management, staff and appropriate key stakeholders.
Consistent with internationally recommended practices, the Incident Management System (IMS) provides standardized organizational structures, functions, processes and terminology for use at all levels of emergency response and recovery. IMS addresses the need for coordinated responses to all types of incidents and has been developed with input from more than 30 emergency response organizations.
IMS is a standardized approach to emergency management encompassing personnel, facilities, equipment, procedures, and communications operating within a common organizational structure. The IMS is predicated on the understanding that in any and every incident there are certain management functions that must be carried out regardless of the number of persons who are available or involved in the emergency response and recovery.
