New Jersey Type 3 All-Hazard Incident Management Team
The New Jersey All-Hazards Incident Management Team (NJ-AHIMT) provides incident management or support during incidents or events that exceed a jurisdiction's or agency's capability or capacity. The team includes members of various local, county, and state agencies; Nongovernmental Organizations (NGO); and private sector organizations. It is a statewide resource administered and managed by the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management (NJOEM). The NJ-AHIMT can be requested through NJOEM by any State agency, allied agency, County OEM, or Municipal OEM. The team is also available to deploy outside of NJ via the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) and the Interagency Resource Ordering Capability (IROC).
The team increases New Jersey's ability to achieve the National Preparedness Goal core capability of Operational Coordination, which is to establish and maintain a unified and coordinated operational structure and process that appropriately integrates all critical stakeholders and supports the execution of core capabilities. In order to achieve this, the team maintains itself as a Type 3 Incident Management Team as per FEMA's resource typing definitions. The team is also trained, exercised, and competent to perform as an EOC Management Support Team.
