A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to establishing a citywide incident management system

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 30 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 30-116 to read as follows:

§ 30-116 Incident management system.

a. Definitions. For purposes of this section the term “incident management system” means a nationally recognized and organized system of rules, responsibilities and standard operating procedures for emergency response and recovery operations.

b. The commissioner shall establish a mandatory citywide incident management system, which shall be the city’s protocol for responding to and recovering from all local emergencies and incidents which require a multi-agency response within the city. The citywide incident management system shall comply with the minimum standards and guidelines established by the national incident management system, as defined in paragraph (7) of section 311 of title 6 of the United States code, or its successor.

c. The commissioner shall develop and implement a written protocol for the citywide incident management system established pursuant to this section and shall update and maintain such protocol to ensure the citywide incident management system complies with federal incident management standards and requirements, is compatible with new technologies and trends in incident management, and incorporates lessons learned and corrective actions identified in after-action reviews of emergency incidents and events. 

d. The commissioner, in coordination with other agencies, shall establish and maintain a citywide incident management system training curriculum to be utilized by all agencies. The training and curriculum developed pursuant to this subdivision shall meet the training requirements of the national incident management system or its successor. 

e. All agencies shall comply with the standards and requirements of the citywide incident management system as set forth in the written protocol developed by the commissioner pursuant to subdivision c of this section.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of emergency management may promulgate rules or take other actions for the implementation of this local law prior to such effective date.
