In developing Emergency and Incident response programs for our Clients, Thomson Bridge draws on the body of work and philosophy of the Australasian Inter-service Incident Management System (AIIMS).
AIIMS is the incident management doctrine adopted by all Australasian fire and emergency services. AIIMS 2017 was informed by the research findings from the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC, the Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre (CRC), and a range of other research institutions.
AIIMS provides a common incident management framework, process and procedures enabling coordinated and transparent integration of activities and resources. The system is both flexible and scalable. It can be applied equally to both small and brief responses through to large, complex and protracted incidents. There are approximately 300 organisations which have adopted AIIMS within Australia.
For private and public sector organisations, adopting AIIMS ensures their procedures and systems are compliant and compatible with systems of work used by the fire and emergency services, leading to a common understanding of each other’s terminology, approaches and objectives.
