In NIMS, when do managers plan and prepare for the demobilization process?

Possible Answers:

  1. At the end of the incident
  2. During recovery
  3. At the same time, they begin mobilizing resources
  4. When transitioning between operational periods.

The Correct Answer:

C. In NIMS, managers plan and prepare for the demobilization process at the same time they begin mobilizing resources.


The demobilization process takes place after the goals of an incident have been achieved, and the resources are not required in the incident area. The demobilization process can be defined as a safe, efficient, and orderly return of the resources that have been used in the incident. After the incident, these resources are returned to their original status and location.

The managers are responsible for planning and preparing the demobilization process at the very beginning when they start mobilizing the resources to the incident area. The workers responsible for handling the resources should mobilize or reassign the resources whenever they are not needed in the incident.
