 Provide summary of NRP development process

   Homeland Security Presidential
           Directive 5
Directed Secretary, DHS to develop and administer:
  1. National Incident Management System (NIMS)
       Core set of concepts, principles and terminology for
        incident command and multiagency coordination.
  2. National Response Plan (NRP)
       All-discipline, all-hazards plan.

National Incident Management System
“…a consistent nationwide approach for Federal, State,
 tribal, and local governments to work effectively and
 efficiently together to prepare for, prevent, respond to,
 and recover from domestic incidents, regardless of
 cause, size, or complexity…”
