General Orders


The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office (JSO) has adopted the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and Incident Command System (ICS)AS the method of response to organize both short-term and long-term field-level operations for an “All Hazards” approach to a broad spectrum of emergencies ranging from small to complex incidents, both natural and manmade.
The complete NIMS handbook can be located on the Federal Emergency Management Agency website.
This adoption is in conjunction with the City of Jacksonville’s Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan, the Homeland Security Act of 2002, and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5.
Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) / Presidential Policy Directive (PPD) Directives issued by the President of the United States on matters pertaining to Homeland Security.
National Response Framework (NRF) designed to reflect the policy established in the Homeland Security Act of 2002, and HSPD 5 to create a single comprehensive approach to domestic incident management.
The HSPD 5 was designed to enhance the ability of the United States to manage domestic incidents including terrorist attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies by establishing a single comprehensive approach to domestic incident management.
National Incident Management System (NIMS) embraces the ICS and establishes a response structure that is scalable to meet the needs and complexity of a disaster event.
Incident Command System (ICS) is a component of NIMS and is a standard incident management organization with five functional areas – command, operations, planning, logistics, and finance/administration – for management of all major incidents.
HSPD 5, PPD 8, and memorandums from the NIMS Integration Center is controlled by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
