The National Incident Management Organization is a seven member team of professional incident managers with complex incident management as the primary focus of their positions. NIMO uses a wide range of methods to accomplish this goal. Essential components required for success include: a strong core of full-time Command and General Staff available year round for incident management with consistent performance expectations and standards for these incident management positions.

In addition to complex incident management involvement, these teams have year-round "non-incident" duties in support of Fire and Aviation Management. Among these are: training, quality assurance activities, fuels management, fuels implementation, fire and resource management support, NWCG projects, cost containment, and leadership development.
