The Correct Answer:

The Statement ‘NIMS Components are adaptable to planned events such as sporting events’ is True.


The National Incident Management System or NIMS is responsible for directing all the branches of any non-government, governmental organizations, and the corporate sector to collaborate in the prevention, mitigation, response, and recovery of the events (mainly emergency or hazardous situations). This is a standardized structure for disaster response & incident handling that applies to all stakeholders having incident-related obligations. It is a national project maintained to standardize the core procedures usually involved for efficiently managing severe emergency incidents. This management system is relevant to emergencies of any size, severity, or complexity. Because of its flexibility, NIMS can be applied to a wide range of occurrences, including hazard levels, demography, weather, location, historical, and organizational authority.

The NIMS also provides systems and procedures that govern personnel collaboration during any incident. NIMS provides a common vocabulary, methods, and techniques for all the stakeholders involved in delivering the capabilities and facilitating required objectives defined in the National Preparedness System.

The main scope of the organization are:

  • All incidents(despite their scope, complexity, or  size)
  • Planned events like sporting events

The constituents of NIMS are capable of adapting to any circumstance, from regular, native occurrences to the ones requiring any mutual assistance initiations to those needing an organized government response, regardless of whether the event is planned (example, significant sporting or community activities), notice event (e.g., massive storm), or even no-notice hazardous situation (such as an earthquake). The central functioning bodies in NIMS are listed down below:

  • Emergency responders 
  • Other incident personnel
  • NGOs like community-based and faith-based groups
  • Appointed and Elected officials
  • The private sector
  • People with disabilities or functional needs

These agencies are responsible for taking responsibility for a significant crisis during a sporting event or other event. Despite this, sport and event venue managers should be aware of the NIMS’s general components so that they can take benefit from it. The command group for a sporting event or venue is also responsible for creating a framework for planning, responding, and communicating during an issue. The groups must follow communication and data administration concepts to avoid miscommunication or any other problems. Irrespective of the event or venue, all incident command activities should include disabled people and others with accessibility and necessities.
